The History of Lace Wigs
So you think lace wigs are a new hair fashion? Not So! Lace wigs have been around since the 1600s. I’m sure that you have seen movies that portray people wearing long curly, white wigs (George Washington, for example). While you may think wigs came about during that time period, actually, the first known wigs were worn by Egyptians hundreds of years earlier as protection from the sun. The wigs prevented the sun from burning their shaved heads. Other ancient peoples, including the Assyrians, Phoenicians, Greeks, and Romans have also used lace wigs.
Depending on the era, wigs were also frequently worn as a sign of wealth and were linked to a particular profession. During times of war, wigs were even used to intimidate their enemies.
Today, wigs and hairpieces are no longer used as a status symbol. They are worn by many, whether it is on a daily basis or for an occasion as a matter of convenience. As a society, we are so busy working, taking care of our families, going to school that we don’t have a lot of time to spend on our hair, yet we want to look good every day. Lace wigs are a great investment because you’ll never have to worry about having a bad hair day again! Yes, it’s just that simple! You can have effortless, beautiful hair every day.
