Why Did Men and Women Shave Off Their Eyebrows for Fashion In the 1700s?

Women shaved off their eyebrows as a fashion statement, and so did many men during the 1700s.

They also removed the rest of the hair from their faces and foreheads, then wore extended hairpieces on their foreheads and press on mouse skin eyebrows.

By the late 1700s, women, and some men, started shaving their heads completely so they could wear giant ornate wigs.

In the 1780s, elaborate hats replaced elaborate hairstyles.

Marie Antoinette, Queen of France, was one of the most influential figures in fashion during the 1700s.
