NEW YORK, Aug. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Wendy Williams, beloved TV host of the long-running "Wendy Williams Show," today announced the launch of her new Wendy Williams Hair World Collection.

The new collection was developed by Wendy Williams and is marketed by Specialty Commerce Direct, the top U.S. direct marketer for wigs, hairpieces and extensions.

For TV personality, style icon and self-proclaimed "wigologist" Wendy Williams, wigs are a way of life.

After years of wearing, styling and openly talking about wigs on her show, she has become a recognized expert in the field, entertaining her viewers with fun stories and examples of how to proudly create hairstyles that fit their personalities and make them feel beautiful.

"Hair is a whole world. It's the wigs, it's the things that you use to brush them and clean them, the products that you use – wigs and hairpieces help you find and get the hair that fits your style and personality." 

Williams stands for the idea that wigs should be fun and fashion-forward for all women, not thought of as merely something to cover up a problem. Unlike other wig collections, Wendy Williams Hair World is intended for women of all ethnicities and includes style options for every skin color, personal style and preference. 

"Beauty is about diversity," Williams said. "No matter what their style, attitude or skintone, all women are beautiful, and my goal with this line is to help them look and feel their best."

The first twelve styles of the Wendy Williams Hair World Collection are now available through Especially Yours, a retailer of Specialty Commerce Direct, at www.especiallyours.com. The entire collection, which will launch on September 1st, will feature a total of 56 pieces – including wig styles, weaves, hairpieces and accessories. Wig prices will range from $49.99 to $999.
