Chinese People Have Long Had The Habit Of Wearing Wigs

At first, it was an ornament for women in the upper class. It was added to the original hair to make it thicker and make a more complex bun. Wigs were popular in the spring and Autumn period. In the Han Dynasty, hairstyles and hair accessories were formulated according to Zhou Li. In the Three Kingdoms period, women also used a bun; After the Northern Qi Dynasty, the form of fake bun developed in the direction of singularity until the Yuan Dynasty, Han women began to use a fake bun called Qiji. There are still many styles of BUN in the Qing Dynasty, but after the founding of the Republic of China, the hairstyle became simpler and less wigs and BUN were used. Traditional Japanese hairstyles are often combined with wig combs. Wigs have a long history in Japan. It is said that in the primitive songs and dances in Japan, people have decorated their heads with stems and vines of grass and flowers. Wearing a bun became popular on the Korean Peninsula in the Koryo Dynasty. The loyal king ordered Koryo to wear Mongolian clothes and keep Mongolian hair bun (braided hair). Later, Korean Emperor Li Chenggui established the Korean Dynasty and adopted the policy of "men falling but women not falling". Men restored the Han system, while women "went hand in hand with Mongolia and Han". Later, it developed into the style of "Jiayu". At the time of the emperor Yingzu, a woman broke her neck until she died because of the weight of the Jiaxi. Only then did the palace abolish the requirement that married royal women and female officials must wear Jiaxi.
The history of wigs

Wigs appeared very early in China. In the early stage, they were ornaments for upper class women. They were used to add them to the original hair to make the hair thicker and make a more complex bun《 The book of songs · wind · gentlemen grow old together refers to a wig called "Vice" and "disdain for wind"], "髢" (pinyin: D ì, phonetic notation: ㄉ I) ˋ) It is a partial wig or a bun made of hair《 The book of songs · Zhaonan · Caihu calls the bun made of wig "quilt", which is the general holiday of Hu.

In Zhou Li, wigs are divided into many kinds, and "Vice" is taken from "cover", which is a kind of decorated wig“ "Braid" belongs to a kind of wig without decoration“ "Ci" is a bun made of wig and real hair. Later, these names were replaced by "髲" and "鬄". 髲 "refers to wigs made of human hair, and" 鬄 "generally refers to wigs. In the Western Zhou Dynasty, the empress, the king's wife and other aristocratic women in the upper class wore secondary, woven and inferior jewelry when participating in major activities such as sacrifice. The Queen's bun has a special court official "Zhui Shi" in charge.

Wigs were popular in the spring and Autumn period. It was recorded in Zuo Zhuan · the 17th year of AI Gong that when Duke Wei Zhuang saw the beautiful hair of Ji's wife from Rongzhou on the city wall, he ordered someone to forcibly shave off her hair and make a wig for his wife LV Jiang as decoration, known as "Lv Jiang". At that time, men also wore wigs. Zhuangzi Tiandi mentioned that Youyu (Shun) covered his bald head with wigs [5]. Although the content about Shun in Zhuangzi is a legend, it can be seen that men also used wigs at that time.

The Han Dynasty formulated hairstyles and hair accessories according to Zhou Li. For example, the Empress Dowager still carried a variety of heavy and complex headwear in a bun, which later evolved into a heavy Phoenix crown. There is a great demand for wigs in the palace. In order to find people to make wigs, some officials even forcibly cut off their heads and take their hair《 The book of Linyi quoted from the book of Linyi in Taiping Yulan mentions how long the people of zhuya (also known as zhuya, today's Hainan Island) have hair. The local sheriff is greedy and cruel. He cuts off women's heads and takes their hair to make wigs [6]. It is also recorded in the annals of the Three Kingdoms · Wu Shu · Xue Zong biography that Xue Zong mentioned this incident in the Han Dynasty. It can be seen that wigs were regarded as treasures at that time. Because it was not easy to get wigs made of real hair, wigs made of black silk began to appear at that time. There were physical objects unearthed in Han tomb No. 1, Mawangdui, Changsha, Hunan.

In the Three Kingdoms period, women also used fake bun. In the Cao Wei period, it was stipulated as the jewelry of life women. According to the general examination of literature, one of the fake bun is called "big hand bun", which is the jewelry of life women below noble people and wives [8]. In the Jin Dynasty, wigs and buns were very popular in the court, nobles and people. Because people would take wigs and buns off and put them on cages made of wood or bamboo when they slept, they looked like heads, so they were also called fake heads《 Jin Shu · records of public service records that at that time, life women at all levels wore a fake bun inlaid with gold ornaments and called "cover bun". During the reign of the Taiyuan Dynasty, women from the princess, aristocracy and scholar bureaucrats regarded wearing wigs as their makeup. They were called "slow temples and light bun", that is, loose bun, which became a popular fashion. However, not everyone can afford wigs. The book of Jin records that some poor but beautiful women borrow wigs from others, which is called "borrowing heads" and call themselves "headless" [10]. There are also some poor people who sell their hair for money or food. For example, Tao Kan's mother once cut off her hair and sold it to wigs for several meters. Then she cut down the pillars for firewood and cooked for fan Kui who came to stay《 This matter is also recorded in Shishuoxinyu Xianyuan , which is cited as a beautiful talk in later generations, and it is also the allusion of the idiom "Tao mother invites guests".

The form of the fake bun in the Northern Qi Dynasty developed in the direction of singularity. The book of the Northern Qi Dynasty, records of young masters, described the flying, dangerous, evil and partial styles of women's fake bun at that time. At that time, wigs even completely replaced the hair growing on the head. Ji Yi Ji recorded that some beautiful women in the court shaved their hair to wear wigs, which later became popular among the people.

In fact, it is not so difficult to buy wigs. We should mainly focus on the following points: 1. Appropriate: the size is appropriate, the head circumference is appropriate, it will not be too tight, hinder the blood circulation, it can't be too loose, and it will fall off if we don't pay attention to it a little. 2. Comfort: it must be comfortable, breathable, not muggy, and not too heavy. Otherwise, it is destined to be idle at any point. 3. Beautiful: after all, whether it's to cover the sparse hair or to have a good-looking hairstyle, it's all for beauty. The key to beauty is that the hair quality is good, it looks shiny, bright, soft and comfortable to touch

Four key points for purchasing wigs:

It is not like hair at all, but more like a bad hat. If you spend money or this effect, it is undoubtedly a waste of money. The method to distinguish the quality of hair is also super simple. Take a few hair filaments and burn them with fire. The real hair is powdered, and the artificial hair is in a ball shape. The high-quality real hair has good toughness, elasticity and is not easy to break. The low-quality real hair is easy to break. Second: the hair weaving process is better. With good hair quality and matching technology, the overall realistic effect will go up. Third: look at the face shape.
