Wigs as the Height of Fashion

Fashion was just as important in the 18th century as today. In fact, maybe even more so if you wanted to be part of the “in crowd.”

Routinely wearing a wig may seeem strange to us, especially for men, but it communicated the wearer’s elegance, his station in society, and even his occupation to his fellow colonists.
