The development history of wigs(2)

During the Middle Ages, with the advent of Christianity, wigs became increasingly simple. By the late Middle Ages (1200~1400 AD), wigs became less important due to the hardships of the world. Women are usually asked to wrap their heads, and everyone no longer pays attention to fashion, but takes simplicity as beauty. Then, starting from the Renaissance period (1400~1600 AD), women's hairstyles were regained attention, and women began to show their hair again. They no longer wrap their heads, but decorate their hair with bright veils and shiny jewels. Women wearing wigs have re-emerged, forming a trend, and society has begun to value beauty again. The history of wigs in France can be traced back to the reign of French King Louis XIII. Louis XIII died prematurely, so he began to wear a beautiful wig to cover it up. According to historical records, the first independent wig maker's guild was established in 1673. The wig at this time enjoys the noble blood inherited from the courts of French kings Louis XIII and Louis XIV in the 17th century, and has become an indispensable fashion symbol for the dignitaries. Louis XIV’s mistress combed a unique hairstyle called "high lace" and looked very fashionable. This hairstyle has caused people to follow suit and imitate it, and countless upper-class "fenders" have made this hairstyle by wearing wigs and wigs. By the end of the reign of Louis XIV of the "Sun King", the popularity of wigs has far exceeded the French aristocracy.
