In the 1770s and 1780s, the Founding Fathers embraced the European fashion trend of wearing wigs, a style that had been popular across the Atlantic for over a century. These wigs were not just fashionable but were also seen as a symbol of dignity and social standing. Our Colonial Powder Wig captures this historical essence, making it an ideal accessory for portraying notable figures like Thomas Jefferson, John Hancock, Robert Livingston, and even King George III.

Crafted from white synthetic fibers, this wig offers both authenticity and comfort. It is a one-size wig that features a built-in stretch wig cap, ensuring a customizable fit for different head sizes. Additionally, we provide hair ties in light blue, red, and black to complement a variety of our colonial costumes.

We also include a stretch wig cap to ensure a secure fit and manage your natural hair. This added feature helps keep both your hair and the wig in place, providing a seamless and historically accurate appearance for reenactments, theatrical productions, and educational events.

Step back in time with our Colonial Powder Wig and add a touch of historical authenticity to your costume.

 What size should I order?

"Selecting the right size is crucial when ordering our garments. Please refer to the size chart provided for each individual item, as it is tailored to the specific measurements of that item. You can find the size chart as a photo in the product listing or on a separate informational page. Please follow the measurement instructions provided on the size chart.

Our garments do not follow standard modern-day sizing because they are created based on patterns from specific historical periods. The measurements we provide on the size chart represent the dimensions of the garment itself, not body measurements.

 If you're unsure about your size, measure a similar, NON-STRETCH garment you already own and love. Compare its measurements to the ones on our size chart to ensure you choose the right fit."
