Wigs

From ancient Egypt, these wigs were used in place of headdresses. They signified one’s rank and were associated with the royalty and the wealthy, whether male or female. Servants at the time were prohibited from wearing wigs. These wigs were styled with braided pieces of human hair, wool, palm fibres and other materials set on a thick skullcap.
