Design a Wig!

I love historical fashions, the weirder the better.  Take Europe in the 18th century for example …

18th century women’s wigs put simple modern hair extensions to shame!

Five 18th century wigs, each wilder than the next!

But why just look at pictures when you could be having a go yourself?  Now you can – digitally – at the V&A Design a Wig page here.

Have fun!

  1. Reblogged this on You read it here and commented:

    What Joan Lennon said! Love the Design a Wig idea. And Marie Antoinette’s dress in the main image is insane. In the best possible way. (My wig would feature a sailing ship worth of Pirates of the Caribbean, in honour of Philip Treacy’s magnificent hat for Isabella Blow. Or possibly the Taj Mahal.)

  2. I’m glad you’re enjoying it – as I slump over my keyboard I can’t help thinking a thing like that on my head would MAKE me have better posture! (There may, of course, be other ways of achieving that …)
