The 18th century is an era particularly identified with hair and makeup, as these became such potent symbols of aristocracy during the Enlightenment and French Revolution.

Both men and women powdered their hair or wig throughout the 17th and 18th centuries.  Powdering was introduced when King Henry IV of France (1589-1610) used dark powder on his greying hair.  Hair powder was originally used mostly as a degreaser.  White haired wigs were popular because they were expensive and rare, and so men and women began (in the early 18th century) to use white powder to color their wigs and hair, as it was less destructive than dye.

Our women’s colonial wig  is a great addition to many of our women’s colonial clothing and costumes.
