History of wig(2)

The 18th century saw elaborate wigs with mile-high coiffures and highly decorated curls. White powdered wigs with long ringlets became the order of the day. In fact, some imaginative ladies had wigs with small birdcages complete with bird, on top of their heads. For wigs, big hair was definitely the in-thing.
Another memorable royal who was known for her elaborate wigs was Queen Elizabeth I of England. Wigs were so widespread that virtually all the elite wore wigs or elaborate hairstyles during this time. It is not surprising that by the end of the 18th century the number of French master wigmakers had skyrocketed from the fashion center of Paris to other European capitols and finally to provincial cities as well. In addition to the guild master wigmakers were thousands of journeymen wig makers and artisans traveling the European countryside producing wigs clandestinely. Eventually, wigs were no longer an exclusive luxury item, an exclusive marker of high birth or a status symbol worn by the privileged few. A shorter, less elaborate wig, called the bob wig, was very popular in Colonial America at the beginning of the 18th century.

The word “wigs”, itself, is taken from “periwigs” which was the name of the particular long, curly wigs that became popular after Charles II was returned to the throne in 1660. Some historian attribute popular fashion status of the periwig to Louis XIII. The periwig simulated real hair and was primarily used for adornment or to cover the loss of real hair. Periwigs became extremely sought after it achieved status symbol. Having become a tradition of the English Court, the periwig is still seen today in modern British courts.

By the end of the 18th century, young men began wearing their hair in a more natural state. Although the powered look and the use of wigs continued, it was not longer a fashion look worn everyday but reserved for older, more conservative men and ladies who were being presented at court. With the civil unrest in France against the excesses of the nobility and the association between fashion, wigs and the aristocracy, the importance of wigs in France also began to slowly fade away during the time of the French Revolution.

The start of the 20th century saw the use of more hairpieces being used to enhance hairstyles. However, wigs have never regained the immense popularity that they once enjoyed.

Everything associated with fashion: hairstyles, wigs, clothing, shoes, handbags evolve. Modern technology has made stylish, chic synthetic wigs within the reach of everyone. Wig manufacturers are constantly developing better wig cap construction, fit, and styling. Human hair wigs allow the maximum in versatility and styling possibilities, while synthetic wigs look like natural, healthy human hair, yet are easier to maintain and are less expensive. In western countries the #1 reason wigs are worn is for convenience.
Yet wigs are still worn today to create aesthetic attention. Many celebrities have based their stage image on the use of wigs; just look at Cher or Dolly Parton.

The History Of Wigs (1)

In ancient Egypt, both males and females wore wigs made either from human hair, sheep’s wool or vegetable fibers, depending upon their social status. There were a number of benefits for Egyptians from shaving their heads. First it was more comfortable in the hot Egyptian climate not to have hair. Secondly, a baldhead helped avoid the danger of an infestation of lice, which was a problem at that time. However, it appears that Egyptians preferred having “hair” which resulted in the creation of wigs that gave the appearance of hair. The new wigs also protected the Egyptians’ baldheads from the brutal sun. Wigs became part of daily wear for the Egyptian people indicating a person’s status as well as their role in a society or politics. Women’s wigs were adorned with braids and gold, hair-rings and ivory ornaments making them more stylish than men’s wigs. Ultimately, the more elaborate and involved the wig was, the higher the social rank.

Other ancient civilizations whose citizens wore wigs were the Greeks, Romans, Assyrians, and the Phoenicians. For the Romans, in particular, wigs were often made with hair from slaves. During the Roman Empire wealthy Roman women often wore elaborate hairpieces to greatly increase the volume and effect of the hairstyle.

In contrast, the people of the ancient civilizations in the Far East, including China and Japan, rarely wore wigs except by actors performing in the traditional theaters of China and Japan (Noh or Kabuki) and by certain types of female entertainers such as the Japanese geisha or the Korean Kisaeng.

With the emergence of Christian influences during the medieval era became plainer. By the Middle Ages (1200-1400 A.D.) wigs lost their relevance because of difficult times. Women were usually required to have their head covered, fashion was off everyone’s radar, and beauty was austere. Then, in the beginning of Renaissance (1400-1600) the female hairstyle regained importance and women began showing their hair again. Instead of covering their heads, they adorned their coiffures with lustrous veils and sparkling jewels. Once again women wigs emerged as fashion and beauty became important considerations in society.

The history of wigs in France stretches back to the reign of Louis Xlll who went prematurely bald. To disguise his baldness he began wearing elaborate wigs. Historical records indicate that the first independent wigmakers’ guild was created in 1673. The wig now enjoyed the most noble of pedigrees from the seventeenth-century French courts of Louis XIII and Louis XIV and it became a fashion icon that was integral to the aristocratic world of power and display. The mistress of King Louis XIV wore her hair in a signature hairstyle called the la Fontange. It was a fashion look that was copied and with the help of hairpieces and false locks worn by numerous high upper class “wantabees”. By the end of the Sun King’s reign, wigs had spread well beyond the nobility of France. Kings at royal courts across Europe wore wigs, now a most essential feature of the European noble costume.  –  from WIKI

How to Maintain a Curly Cosplay Wig

Putting together a cosplay costume involves time and effort, so taking care of every part of it, including the wig, means you get to show off your hard work for a long time to come. Maintaining a curly wig calls for some special supplies. However, unless your wig is made of 100 percent human hair, do not use heat-styling tools on it or you may melt the fibers. Instead, use the right techniques on your curly wig to keep it looking great for the next con.

Wear a wig cap under your wig to help keep your natural scalp oils from soiling the wig.

Use products designed specifically for synthetic wigs, such as liquid wig mousse, to take down frizz. Do not use regular hair products, which can degrade your wig. To use the wig mousse, apply a small amount to your hands and work it into the wig, starting at the ends.

Use your fingers or a wide-tooth comb to gently detangle the wig. Do not use a brush, which would ruin the curls. You may shake the wig to keep the curls bouncy.

Store the wig after each use on a wig stand or in a wig storage net. Make sure you store it styled and not folded. Keep it in a cool, dry location.

Wash your cosplay wig only every 12 to 20 wears because each wash shortens the life of your wig and relaxes the curls. Infrequent cosplayers need to wash their wigs only rarely. Check to see if the wig is greasy or has an odor. If so, give your wig a wash.

Fill a sink with a few inches of cool water. Do not use hot water which will relax the curls. Add a tablespoon of synthetic wig shampoo to the water and submerge the wig. Let it soak for a few minutes before gently swirling it around in the water. Soak the wig for a few more minutes in the soapy water.

Rinse the shampoo out with clean cool water.

Lay the wig out on a towel and gently blot it. Do not rub or wring it out. Use your fingers to arrange the curls so they set nicely as they dry. If the curls are tangled, spray a little leave-on wig conditioner over the wig. Work out the knots with your fingers, starting at the ends and working up to the roots. Arrange the curls and let it air dry on a towel.

Tighten up loose curls by wrapping the locks smoothly around sponge curlers. Be careful not to fold any strands of hair or they will set that way.

Female Pattern Hair Loss

The most common type of hair loss seen in women is androgenetic alopecia, also known as female pattern alopecia or baldness. This is seen as hair thinning predominantly over the top and sides of the head. It affects approximately one-third of all susceptible women, but is most commonly seen after menopause, although it may begin as early as puberty. Normal hair fall is approximately 100-125 hairs per day. Fortunately, these hairs are replaced. True hair loss occurs when lost hairs are not regrown or when the daily hair shed exceeds 125 hairs. Genetically, hair loss can come from either parents side of the family.

There are two different types of hair loss, medically known as anagen effluvium and Telogen effluvium. Anagen effluvium is generally due to internally administered medications, such as chemotherapy agents, that poison the growing hair follicle. Telogen effluvium, is due to an increased number of hair follicles entering the resting stage. The most common causes of Telogen Effluvium are:
Physical stress: surgery, illness, anemia, rapid weight change.
Emotional stress: mental illness, death of a family member.
Thyroid abnormalities.
Medications: High doses of Vitamin A, Blood pressure and Gout medications.
Hormonal causes: pregnancy, birth control pills, menopause.
When the above causes of telogen effluvium are reversed or altered you should see the return of normal hair growth.

Dietary Considerations
Hair loss may also occur due to dieting. Franchised diet programs which are designed or administered under the direction of a physician with prescribed meals, dietary supplements and vitamin ingestion have become popular. Sometimes the client is told that vitamins are a necessary part of the program to prevent hair loss associated with dieting. From a dermatologists’s standpoint, however, the vitamins cannot prevent hair loss associated with rapid, significant weight loss. Furthermore, many of these supplements are high in vitamin A which can magnify the hair loss.

Physical and Emotional Stress

Surgeries, severe illnesses and emotional stress can cause hair loss. The body simply shuts down production of hair during periods of stress since it is not necessary for survival and instead devotes its energies toward repairing vital body structures. In many cases there is a three month delay between the actual event and the onset of hair loss. Furthermore, there may be another three month delay prior to the return of noticeable hair regrowth. This then means that the total hair loss and regrowth cycle can last 6 months or possibly longer when induced by physical or emotional stress. There are some health conditions which may go undetected that can contribute to hair loss. These include anemia or low blood count and thyroid abnormalities. Both of these conditions can be detected by a simple, inexpensive blood test.

Hormonal Considerations
Hormonal changes are a common cause of female hair loss. Many women do not realize that hair loss can occur after pregnancy or following discontinuation of birth control pills. It is important to remember that the hair loss may be delayed by three months following the hormonal change and another three months will be required for new growth to be fully achieved.
