Pei'ah Arukah

I'm posting this here because it deserves to be a farbrengen topic in and of itself.
We've all seen the women who walk around with their wigs longer than they'd ever have allowed their hair to be. One day, while saying birchot hashachar, I realized what the problem is.

There's a mitzvah of pei'ah, leaving a corner of the field. And about this we say every day 'eilu d'varim she'ain lahem shi'ur: ha'pei'ah, v'habikurim...'.
What's the problem? No one ever taught these women that when we say that 'eilu...she'ain lahem shi'ur..', we are talking about the pei'at hasadeh. They think we are talking about the pei'ah that serves as a kisui rosh.*

Well, what do you think of my genius observation? Let's start educating them!

Why can't the wig be longer than their hair?

The fact that it's longer than their hair is not a problem. The fact that it's longer than their hair would ever be- ie, longer than shoulder length, is the problem. Whether it's your hair or not, there are certain boundaries that need to be kept to for the sake of tzniut.
