Many celebrities get hair extensions
to improve on what nature gave them, if they don't opt to wear a complete wig from time to time. Ruth Regina
, an 8th generation wigmaker with extensive experience working with celebrities, decided that the latest celebrity accessory might benefit from some extra hair, too. In addition to her work on human wigs, she also designs wigs for dogs
. Is it really that much of a stretch from dressing dogs up in little outfits and tiaras? Perhaps not. Regina describes them as being "just little people in fur coats."
The pieces can cost hundreds of dollars, depending on the size and style desired. Styles include: "Yappy Hour," a cascade of curls; "Peek a Bow Wow," reminiscent of Veronica Lake; and "Rover R-r-r-rug," which give an appearance similar to bangs. All can be dyed to any color you (or your pooch) desire.
