In the 18th century, human hair wigs experienced both rise and fall. At the beginning of this century, wearing wigs was popular and common. People wore different kinds of wigs, such as deep wave wigs and full-bottomed wigs. However, in the mid of this century, wigs seemed to disappear overnight. At the end of this century, powdered wigs were replaced by powdered natural hair. Within these 100 years, wigs also went through a short time of returning. It was in the Macaroni period, which fashion trends are still doubtful for people till nowadays.
Sophisticated to over sophisticated
The Macaroni period was started by young British people who aimed to open their eyes and broaden their horizons through grand tours. They visited many places during their tours. And at the beginning, macaroni was used to describe somthing fashionable. So the meaning of this word was sophisticated, modern and worldly. And these young people were greatly influenced by foreign styles and traditions. After they came back, they showed this influence via their clothing and personal styles. Thus, they wore tight pants, short coats, flashy shoes, stripped socks and exaggeratedly high and heavy wigs. In this period, the fashion trend was female oriented. People tended to be skinny, which they thought was indeed beautiful and charming. Women tended to wear grey or blueish grey wigs. The meaning of macaroni was changed as the period gained further development. It was used to describe a person who exceeded the conventional bounds in terms of fashion.
Although the Macaroni period was short, its fashion trends also influenced people later. And this period played an important role in the history of human hair wigs.
