At that time, France was the vane of fashion trends in European countries, so this wig style quickly swept the whole of Europe. Judge with white curly wigs are often seen in TV dramas. It was the popular style at that time.


Early wigs were made of human hair, such as the hair of debtors and the hair of dead people. This situation didn't end until Humphrey Ravenscroft invented the technology of making wigs with ponytails in 1822.

For a long time, the raw materials for this wig, horse mane, mostly came from China, because the mane of European horses is not easy to be woven and easily broken, and the mane needs constant bleaching and cleaning in the production process, and only the mane produced by Chinese horses can go through these tests. With the development of science and technology, there are a lot of artificial chemical fiber wigs and artificial protein wigs, but with the high pursuit of people's quality of life, there are also a lot of 100% wigs. These wigs are usually obtained from them in cooperation with barber shops, or from young girls around the world who want to have their hair cut short, and they are purchased from them with the consent of them and their guardians. These are all high-quality raw materials.
