Continuity mistake: When Vivian is taking a bath and singing that song, the Walkman is lying on the right side of the tub, with its wires resting along the edge of the tub. When it cuts from Edward back to Vivian, the Walkman is in a different place and the headphone wire is in the water.

Question: Why was Vivian wearing a wig at the beginning of the movie? Was it just part of her job/hooker persona or something?

Answer: As the other answer indicated, it was part of her cheap hooker persona, but it also makes a greater impact on the audience when they see Vivian undergo her "transformation" with the classy designer clothes, toned-down make-up, and her own nicely-styled hair.
