Clients often bring in photos of hairstyles they want worn by a celebrity in a wig.  The clients are usually shocked to find out it is a wig.  Wigs are very common in Hollywood these days, particularly those of the "lace front" variety.  Here is a visual of a lace front wig before it has been glued on:
The lace is glued on to the skin and often goes undetected.  However, sometimes crinkling of the skin or make up getting stuck in the glue can give a wig-wearer away.  To spot a wig look for a mesh halo around the face.  Also, if a hairstyle looks TOO perfect it might just be a wig.  Here are some examples of celebrities in wigs:
Ms. Beyonce Knowles is an avid wig wearer.
