Men’s Styles

April 13, 2011 at 12:45 am (Flippin Wigs!)

Below are some of the popular wig styles for men in the first half of the 18th Century. The Full Bottomed Wig (top row: 1715) was introduced in the 17th Century by Louis XIV. It lingers in the early 18th Century-first as a fashionable wig, and then as a choice for the more conservative man. Ponytail wigs-known as wigs with queues (ponytails or braids) that stood tall off the forehead with strategic back combing were called toupee/foretop wigs (bottom row). These were introduced in the 1710s. The variation here is called a bag wig since the queue is placed into a silk bag. Despite the introduction of the toupee wig, most wigs for men favor tall and wide styles during this part of the century. As the suit silhouette grows narrower and more vertical, wig styles follow suit.
Pictured here are various Wig Styles for men seen during the second half of the 18th Century.

Top Row:

Left/Center Left(Fig. 1&2): Bob Wig

Far Right (Fig. 4):Toupee/Fortop Wig with queue

Center Right (Fig. 3): Bag Wig

Bottom Row:

Left/Center Left (Fig. 5&6): A Bob Wig Variation

Far Right (Fig. 9): Silk bag from Bag Wig

 

 

This is a Club Wig also known as aCatogan, which is rather similar to the Toupee/Foretop wig. The queue is extra long. It is double backed upon itself and secured in the middle with a ribbon. This creates a ‘figure 8’ or hourglass shape (A) that hangs like a heavy knob or a ‘club’ in the back.
