So many wigs!

I think she looked lovely at SXSW in 2009...I don't know what type of fake hair/wig/whatever it is, but it looked great.

Who the fuck told her it would look better in orange? The dress is neat too.

the 2009 wig. It was thinner and seemed to look as close to her real hair shape than the others. I don't like how orange it is however (would have looked a lot better if it was a more darker red color).

I vote for Cheeto because though it looks pretty bad, she wasn't serious about it, while all the other non-doll wigs she probably thinks look natural and beautiful.

Panta! I did forget her.

2009

Can I make an honorable mention? It's not a wig, I don't think? It's not all hers for sure, but does anyone remember the hair when she started promo for SW?

Squirrel reminded me, she looks like a country singer from the 70's!

I can't believe I'm saying this about anything that happened during the SW era, but I will take a swimming pool of Cheeto wigs before I ever want to see this look again. God DAMN that is awful. The makeup isn't helping.

I voted for Pip, but it took me sometimes to choose between Santa, Pip, Isabel and Clyde. Ironically, I think she looked more natural as all four of the ADP dolls than as herself lately.

No. Really. I can't believe i's you who has done this. ;l ;l ;l I also can't believe I'm going to really have to think about it. ;)

Hahaha! And I can't believe I'm saying the exact opposite, but that look is....almost natural compared to what we've seen since and I'd gladly take it back!

Yeah, I don't think her real hair was that long in the BFP era? Actually the style reminds me a bit of her hair in the Winter video. In any case for the poll I voted for the 2009 wig, haha. She really can look quite nice with the straight hair look (I'm thinking of Scarlet's Walk hair rather than the cheeto straight hair). I also remember a performance (probably around 2000?) where her hair was in a short ponytail, and I thought it looked really nice. It would be interesting if she went for updos more rather than long, heavy wigs.

Out of all the red wigs, her 2010 wig was the best. But I think the Pip wig was pretty good too. The only doll wigs that were really bad were the Tori and Santa ones, Isabel and Clyde had fine wigs.

Jessie

I think her current/NoH wig in the interview portion is pretty. Can't stand pretty much all of the other wigs.

Tori's real, natural, thin, whatever is left of it hair >>>>> any wig at all.

I think she looks really cute in the few semi recent wigless pictures we have. I think she should stop dying it and just let it be all crazy natural.

I tried to make my husband pick a wig, and by his comments he would totally fit right in here, lol. Re: lizard picture "That's not her!" Re: Carry pic "What happened to her teeth??!!" He does like Tori's music though.

She looks SO good there, with her own real curly hair. I wish she'd get a clue. Even wearing wigs the basic color and style of these new NOH ones would go over fine if she'd just have them made short, curly, and with a bit of curl/fringe/whatever 'round the forehead. 'Cause, sorry, but a fringeless wig is ALWAYS a bad idea. C'mon Tori, I figured that out when I was like 12. You're still clueless?

Anyway, I don't like the '09 wig because I have always felt that straight hair looks like shit on her. (ESPECIALLY without bangs.) Among other things it ages her, and er, that's what she's trying to avoid--right? right??? [icon18]

Clyde was very flattering. So I almost chose that one, but the actual color is excellent on these new ones so I voted NOH. The Cheeto Wig (oh so well-named!) was embarrassing.

honestly I find the whole wig thing so frustrating. I actually really, really hate them all. ETA: oh, except Isabel. Because it altered her bone structure, complexion and in fact her whole "look" so immensely, which was quite interesting. That sort of thing, to me, is what wigs are truly for: to change yourself into some other character. Costumes. Acting. Or, because you are actually bald and don't want to be. But Tori isn't bald. *sigh*

I liked her wig in the ADP solo videos in her studio and the 2007 ADP interview with Craig Ferguson. I thought she looked "glam" and classy. Then the orange cheeto one went on tour instead and I couldn't believe it.

She looked very natural and lovely at the Metropole performance, and in the Night of Hunters EPK her hair is nice.

Oh god, I'm just sitting here laughing at the Clyde part. As much as AATS is overall shittier on the music front, ADP's failures were far more grandiose because she was still somewhat in the spotlight at that point. I feel like the public and the press started to dissociate themselves in droves after putting up with all that doll/wig/guitar/milf crap.

I DIED laughing at that part. I was hee-hawing.

That whole video is just from another world. I was sitting in awe. I've never seen it before!

When she said she couldn't pick up the phone as Tori? Hee-haw. Imagine a family member calling her up for a chat and getting Pip on the line.

This whole era was so shittastic, it's unbelievable!
I mean, this whole ADP thing with the dolls could have been interesting. BUT, too many shitty songs, messy production and all these shitty interviews just gave you a headache. Also worth mentioning: the blogs.
What did she want to achieve with this record? It was just chaos.
Was she just uncomfortable with herself and decided to put some fancy wigs on?

Doesn't matter which wig or her real hair, I think that she fails every time, with the only exception being the NoH-period.
Whoever got her the wigs and is making her real hair, should do something effective and flattering. Even her real hair is too long and orange. Too long thin hair with her forehead, where a helicopter could land, is just not flattering. She should try shorter and a bit darker hair.
