Styling an 18th Century Hedgehog Wig

After styling an 18th century wig for the first time last year, I wanted to give it another go and make myself another. I decided this time I wanted to try the hedgehog style. I had a look through the pictures I have saved of the style for inspiration, as it can vary a bit and settled on something like the images below. I also decided I wanted to make it in pink, as coloured hair powders were actually a thing back then and I thought it would be fun. Plus it would be a little ode to the 2006…

Rococo era fashion was both ornamental and theatrical. The hairstyles kept in pace with the times and grew in extravagance and flair. This luxurious 17th - 18th century wig is styled after King Louis XVI of France. Its powdery white tint is consistent with the era and its styling includes pompous upward swirls, pronounced curls and lengthy ringlets. As shown in the photos, the long ringlets may be worn downward or neatly tied at the nape of the neck with its black ribbon tie. Please keep in…
