Tape In Hair

The first hair extensions originated in Ancient Egypt in 3400 BC.  They have the first documented proof of the use of hair extensions as hair weaves, attached braids and wigs.  You can see some of these pieces at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

It was considered a symbol of status and wealth both among women and men of the ancient era.  Wealthy men used to shave their head and use the hair to make ornamented wigs.

Egyptian women used to add hair extensions and braids of bright colors such as gold, red, blue and so on. Cleopatra also weaved her hair with her favorite color peacock blue.

1960 was the era of beehive wigs and wig-lets.  Whereas in the eighteenth century, powdered wigs dominated the hair world. The white powdered wigs also known as Perukes were established by King Louis for hiding his baldness.

In the 18th century, the Apollo hairstyle became popular which had tight curls attached closer to the scalp in mounds. And in the 19th century, the Pompadour hairstyle became a hit. Then in the 1900s, clip-in hair extensions known as the Switch came into fashion.
