SOUTHFIELD (WWJ) – It’s a growing hair trend for younger women these days.

One look at 41-year old Toy Banks’ hair and you’re sold on wigs.

Wig a (Stephanie Davis) 3“It’s not a wig, it’s not a wig,” Banks tells WWJ’s Stephanie Davis. “It’s wig-alicious, baby.”

The Southfield mother of four boys started her “WIG-ALICIOUS” line after she paid over $300 for another wig that didn’t last.

“I thought I would have that for several months – you know – to give my hair a breather, and to strengthen my hair,” she said. “But only two weeks and it made me so angry, that I decided to make my own wig.”

“I was tearing out my hair,” she says. “My whole hair line was just breaking badly and it was just frustrating.”

Banks’ line has grown. She says wigs are definitely back and they don’t look like your grandmothers’.

Some of her customers are battling diseases that cause hair loss like Rita Coleman, who has alopecia.

“So why waste time growing my hair when there are other parts that won’t grow back, the wigs work out for me,” said Coleman.

The wigs are made from human hair, which can be made to fit and can be sewn in as well.
