Wigs have been around for centuries, with their popularity ebbing and flowing depending on the trends of the time. But when did wigs fall out of fashion?
The 18th century was a high point for wigs, with both men and women sporting them. However, by the early 19th century, wigs were starting to fall out of fashion. They were seen as old-fashioned and fussy, and the natural look was becoming more popular.
Wigs made a brief comeback in the 1960s as part of the mod look, but they were soon overshadowed by other trends, such as big hair and Afros.
Today, wigs are mostly worn by people who have lost their hair due to illness or chemotherapy. They can also be worn for fashion or costume purposes, but they’re no longer a mainstream fashion item.
