Flash beauty
In ancient Korea, gache, as traditional human hair wigs, were worn by women in upper class and gained popularity for a short time. It was believed that wearing large gache would make people more elegant. But gache were very expensive, which partly explained why they were only limited in noble women. For families without enough wealth, they had to save money for years and then they could buy a gache for their family members. And there were many valuable decorations on gache, such as gold, jade and jewels, which increased the value of gache as well. Gache were very heavy, from 6.6 to 8.8 pounds each. In the late 18th century, gache were banned because they were not in line with traditional Confucian values. In the 19th century, yangban women started to wear jokduri, a small hat which was the alternative of gache. But gache were still favored by women in traditional ceremonies and events.
