Avoidable or unavoidable?
In the 1761, a coronation ceremony was held for George III, who became the new king of Britian. With a human hair wig, he was present with great happiness. There were many noble men and women in this ceremony. And William Hogarth recevied the invitation, too. After returning from the ceremony, several days later he created a great work, called Five Orders of Periwigs, which was full of irony. In this work, he satirized the phonomenon of wearing strange wigs at that time and expressed his doubt about beauty. This work surprised many people and also irritated anger of the king. But William Hogarth didn’t afraid of that, instead, he continued his creation and left many great works to people later.
Why did William disagree to wear wigs in the 18th century? There was caused by the fad at that time. In that 100 years, wearing wigs experienced many changes. First men loved to powder their wigs. In the middle of that century, men gave up wearing wigs.
Instead, men began to powder their natural hair, which presented the similar effect of wearing wigs. As for women, they started to wear large and heavy coiffures instead of wigs. And these coiffures were attched with valuable accessories, such as gold and diamonds. All of these indicated that wearing wigs was not for comfort, but for keeping up with fashion.
