Ridiculous Fashion!

Outstandingly tall wigs are one of the main things people remember about the 18th century's French court. As the hair got bigger and bigger it became the root of ridicule among the people - and you can see why!

This lady's coiffure apparently contains everything - including a dog and a kitchen sink!
Here, a French gentlewoman is disturbed in her walk by an
Englishman shooting birds that are nesting in her hair!
This caricature from 1770 shows a noblewoman in the middle. Her
ageing husband respectfully kisses her hand while cupids use a
transportable ladder to deliver love letter to her younger lover at the window
