What's a Sheitel?

A sheitel, or the Yiddish word for wig, refers to a specific type of wig worn by married Orthodox Jewish women. To conform with Jewish Law, it is a practice to cover their hair--using a real human hair wig is a popular way to adhere to these laws. The difference between wigs and sheitels is minimal -- modern sheitels often have lace fronts to have a more natural look and feel to the hairline.
