The concept of the powdered wig emerged in France the mid 17th century. King Louis XIII was the man first responsible for the trend, as he wore a wig (originally called "periwig") to cover his premature balding. The Peruke wig, especially the type popular from the 17th to the early 19th century, was made of long hair, often with curls on the sides, and drawn back on the nape of the neck.

Experience life in the 18th century and complete your historical costume with a classic French Peruke style men's wig.

Powdered wigs (men) and powdered natural hair with supplemental hairpieces (women) became essential for full dress occasions and continued in use until almost the end of the 18th century.

Most synthetic Costume Wigs are one size. They have a built in stretch mesh netting that can fit both adults and children alike. We recommend wearing a nylon wig cap under our Costume Wigs as it helps maintain stability and placement of the wig. Depending on whether you have hair or not, this wig cap will keep the hair in place and allow for a more comfortable fit. If you don’t have hair, it will help maintain placement and enable a cooler fit.

Made of 100% synthetic hair.

Washing Instructions:
Add a dash of mild shampoo and swish gently in cold water.
Rinse thoroughly in cold water.
Do not brush when wet and drip dry.
Brush into desired style after wig is completely dry.
Do not use curling irons or curling kits.
