March 28, 2022 LaVivid News Views: 2869

Wigs have become increasingly popular as people want to express their individuality by changing their haircuts whenever and wherever they choose.

Hairpieces and toupees are the most talked-about items these days, so fans look for their favorite personalities to see if they, too, wear them. When looking for information about a toupee when buying for oneself, many people search the internet for small details regarding the product. One of the most common questions concerning wigs and toupees is whether or not celebrities wear them. Some people search this to look for general information or just out of curiosity.

However, you should know that not everything you read on the internet is accurate. Many myths and misconceptions lead you to believe the wrong side of the tale. Famous people, such as celebrities, are often the subject of countless falsehoods and rumors. Believing in anything might lead to disaster!

Lonnie Quinn, one of the most well-known personalities and a fan favorite, is known for his stunning blonde hair. People frequently mistake it for a wig. So let's get down to business and figure out what the matter is.

Who is Lonnie Quinn?

Before we get into his hair, Lonnie's demeanor is something that needs to be discussed. WCBS-TV in New York City's lead weather anchor is Lonnie William Quinn. Quinn used to lead CBS This Morning Saturday's weather segment and now serves on the CBS Evening News. For weather reports, he shows up on the sister radio station WCBS-AM 880. 

He joined WCBS from WTVJ, an NBC-owned and operated station in Miami, where he was the weather anchor for "Today in South Florida" and earned an Emmy for Best On-Air Talent. He took over for John Bolaris in June 2007, who had shifted to weekends only to complete out his contract. 

Quinn engaged closely with Max Mayfield, the previous director of the National Hurricane Center, throughout the 2005 hurricane season, following the most active tropical season in history. Quinn was also part of the Hurricane Hunters team that flew through the eye of Hurricane Isabel off the coast of North Carolina in 2003, collecting data. His first newsroom position after switching careers from acting to broadcasting was as an evening news anchor and weekend weather anchor at WVIR in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Quinn's next visit was Miami, which proved to be a watershed moment in his career. He was not only promoted to full-time weather anchor but he was also given the freedom to establish his own distinct style. Quinn has always been a weather enthusiast, and he despises the concept of a dull weathercast. His goal is to provide viewers with the knowledge they require in a way that is both interesting and amusing. Quinn believes that if he is enthused about the weather, so should the viewers be!

Lonnie continues to provide extensive coverage on the country's tropical storms and hurricanes. He occasionally shares a few of his personal images and videos from his travels, at home, or with his children, as well as behind-the-scenes footage from the studio. Quinn's wife only appears on his social media infrequently, which is one of the reasons why their family has largely maintained their anonymity during Quinn's career. He also uses his social media sites to communicate with fans, frequently posting for their benefit.

Does Lonnie Quinn wear a wig?

Lonnie, who works as a weather reporter, might easily be identified if he wore a wig. Because there are instances when celebrities and well-known people face hair-related blunders, particularly in harsh weather. However, this never happened to Lonnie. 

Even through the television screens, celebrities wearing wigs and toupees are recognized by the public. Lonnie's fans, on the other hand, have met him in person and have even stroked his hair, and they say, “Lonnie has this lovely hair and is handsome in a super-hero type of way. Our eyes crossed at one point during a station break, and he was interested in my ice cream cone hat, which is always a conversation starter. He came up and made a remark about the headgear. We talked about blah-dee-blah stuff for a while, and then I shamelessly admitted that I watch him on weekends, and could I just touch his hair? He was stunned but not offended, so he complied and was really pleased about it. He let me run my fingers through his gorgeous locks, which I thoroughly enjoyed. He continued with his business while our group laughed and took a few shots. By the way, it smells like hairspray but is otherwise quite soft.”

When the crowd was asked at random whether Lonnie wears a wig or not, one of them reacted by saying, "He does not wear a wig. Don't be envious of his flawless locks." Since Lonnie has been very active on social media and people have spotted the same hair in every picture, recording, and live session, it appears that most of the people are certain about his hair. Although his blonde hair is often admired, and very few people believe that these are his artificial locks, Lonnie himself did not bother and acted hilarious when responding to a common man who said that his hair is phony. 

So it's clear that Lonnie isn't wearing a wig and is rocking his natural hair. There is no evidence that he uses a hairpiece, and he has never stated that he does.


It makes little sense for males to be concerned about baldness because it is usually unavoidable, nondescript, and causes no harm. And, strictly speaking, being self-conscious about losing your hair is unmanly; a true man should accept anything less than worldwide armed war as part of life's huge punch to the upper arm. Wearing a wig, on the other hand, is not a sin. It is, without a doubt, a choice!

It's no surprise that real-life celebrities wear wigs. Wigs are adaptable, hassle-free, and, thanks to recent advancements, quite realistic looking! Many celebrities in the show industry, where there is a lot of pressure to appear your best, have turned to wigs. It is not, however, required that everyone wears a wig! Some news is a myth as well. It's the same with Lonnie Quinn's!
