Bye-Bye Bald Babies: Company Sells Wigs for Newborns

Online company Baby Bangs hawks hair pieces for baby girls. Is this a darling, harmless fad? Or just an unnecessary – and kinda creepy – waste?

Bye-Bye Bald Babies: Company Sells Wigs for Newborns

Ever feel like your newborn's missing a little something – say, a full head of hair? No worries. Baby Bangs has the solution to your child's dire dilemma: all the wigs your little girl has ever wanted.

You read right. Baby wigs. (Because every newborn's wailing for one!)

These pretty little pre-cut "HAIR+band" accessories, available in six different natural hair colors and five fancy styles, all started with mother-daughter team Lisa Griggs-Campbell and Whitney (plus modeling granddaughter, Wren.)

According to the website's "'F'HAIR'y' Tale of Baby Bangs" history, Lisa, an established hair-replacement artist, was inspired to experiment with miniature hair pieces after Wren, her first grandchild, was born.

Now Baby Bangs, the "first and only Ready2Wear hairstyle-hair band," has the woodland-fairy look you've been searching for at your fingertips – all for a $30 price tag. Or, as the site declares, these girly get-ups can finally fix those "I'm not a boy!" problems your little princess may be having. (Speaking of boys, who says they're happy being bald? The site has yet to launch a line of mini iconic Bieber bobs – but one day, well, you never know.)

Some say these wee wigs are superficially instilling the societal need of buy-and-improve-beauty at the youngest age possible (Toddlers & Tiaras, anyone?). Yet others still claim they're harmless: Maybe your 3-month-old just wants to be a fairy-elf for Halloween.

Personally, I prefer the Anne Geddes innocence of bald-baby beauty. But either way you do the 'do (or don't), newborns everywhere can now go from Pampers to prima donnas in seconds, if they ever did please.

This is shocking, wigs for new born babies, seems like another way adults have found to exploit kids for their own pleasure. If people buy into this, then give it another 10 years and parents will be requesting a pair of breast implants to go with the wig! Wake up people dont buy into something that is just for a parents vanity!
