The Sarah Palin wig



You think Tina Fey looks good doubling as Sarah Palin? Well, now you too can have the beehive-with-bangs look. Seriously? Yep:

The ‘Sarah Palin Wig,’ based on the hairstyle of the Last Frontier State governor and GOP vice presidential candidate, is the latest head covering to go on sale at Sheitel.com, a Brooklyn wig shop and Web site for Orthodox Jewish women who maintain modesty by concealing their natural hair.

“One of our stylists thought it would make a good style, so we produced it,” said Boruch Shlanger, one of Sheitel.com’s owners, in an e-mail to The Shmooze. “It is very easy to maintain, and is a very classic look, yet fashion forward!”

I can’t understand why the Palin wig would be popular with Orthodox women, but if you’re interested, here’s the link.What does such style cost? A mere $695, roughly the equivalent of two or three haircuts in Los Angeles.
