The 18th century is an era particularly identified with hair and makeup, as these became such potent symbols of the 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 graying 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.

Powdered wigs (men) and powdered natural hair with supplemental hair pieces (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.
