Does Batsheva wear a wig? It was “expected” in the Orthodox community

My Unorthodox Life fans may be wondering if Batsheva Haart wears a wig because she is from the Orthodox Jewish community. The 29-year-old was a married woman when fans first met her on the Netflix show in 2021.

However, when season 2 dropped on Netflix, Batsheva explained that she and husband Ben Weinstein had separated. The couple had been together for ten years but she was seen going through a divorce during season 2.

At the same time, his mother Julia Haart was also going through a divorce. The Haarts lived a different life than they were used to in an Orthodox Jewish community. Let’s see if Batsheva wears a wig these days.

Batsheva explains wigs in the Jewish community

Speaking on Episode 2 of her podcast, Heart To Haart, Batsheva said she grew up “ultra-Orthodox, very religious” and attended an all-girls school.

Hey Alma reports that Batsheva was asked if married Orthodox Jewish women “cover their hair and with what?”

She explained, “Yeah, especially with wigs. But where I grew up some people said wearing a wig wasn’t modest enough because it was like fake hair, so I even knew people who wore something synthetic on their head or just a hat .

Bustle also reported in 2021 that when Batsheva lived in the Orthodox Jewish community, she was “supposed not to wear revealing pants or clothes and cover her hair with a wig.” Since leaving the community, the publication reports that Batsheva has been “eager to experiment with her style.”
