The eighteenth century was an age of elegance. Never in history did we see men and women so elaborately artificial, so far removed from natural appearance. What could not be done with the natural hair was made with wigs.  The wear of wigs in men started to be very popular at the end of the 17th century, but it is undeniably the 18th century that was the golden age of male wig wearing.
