When Did Wigs Start To Come Into Vogue?
For centuries, wigs may have gone out of ordinary men's fashion, but when wigs first appeared in court, they became part of a well-dressed professional.
In seventeenth Century, only the elite in horse hair wigs. Those who can't afford elite costumes, but want to see some wigs that wear fake goats, cotton or human hair.
Wigs became popular in the late sixteenth Century when more and more people in Europe were sexually transmitted diseases. Without extensive antibiotic treatment, syphilis patients suffer from rashes, blindness, dementia, open ulcers and loss of hair. In society, hair loss is particularly serious.
Wigs, which are not used to cover syphilis related hair loss, are great help for people with lice. After all, it's much harder to sterilize and handle hair than to wear a wig.
As time goes by, wigs and society are out of date. During the reign of King George III of England, from 1760 to 1820, only a small number of people wore wigs - the bishops, the coachman and the people in the legal profession. In 1830s, the bishop was allowed to stop wearing. But the court has hundreds of years of wigs.
In 2007, however, most of the new dress codes did not appear in court lawyers' wigs. Wigs are no longer needed in court or in the courts of the United states. But wigs are still used in criminal cases.
In England and Ireland, judges continued to wear wigs until 2011, when the practice had stopped. In England and other British and British former colonies - Canada, for example, in nineteen and twentieth Century, their provinces gave up wigs, or in 2013, the Jamaica and lawyers and judges wore wigs only.
