Answer:

                           Bismihi Ta'ala

Salaamun alaykum,

I am not aware of any fatwa on this issue, however, bearing in mind the
purpose of prescribing hijab in the first place it would not be
far-fetched to specualte that covering of even the synthetic hair would be
obligatory if not covering the same would accentuate the beauty of the
woman and attract attention to her.  I am told by a learned Arab Alim that
some jurists had given permission for women to wear a wig for passport
photos if the government prohibits the head cover. 

God knows best.

wa bi-l-laahi-t-tawfiq,

Hamid Mavani
