In order for a Halloween costume to be believable, you must dress the part from head to foot. The perfect way to do this is by embracing the character you are portraying by donning a wig. Today costume wigs are not only a part of everyday life for use on movie sets as well as on stage, but they are a big part of the Halloween celebration.
The word “wigs” is taken from the term “periwigs” which was the name of the particular long, curly wigs that became popular after Charles II was returned to the throne in 1660. The history of wigs can be linked back to the reign of Louis Xlll who went prematurely bald. To disguise his baldness he began wearing elaborate wigs. Now enjoyed by the most noble of pedigrees, the wig quickly became a fashion icon in the aristocratic world of power and display. At the time many signature hairstyles of the upper class women were copied and worn by numerous women wanting to be just as fashionable. By the end of the King's reign, wigs had spread well beyond the noble realm. Today, the periwig can still be seen in the modern British courts.
