Imagine carrying a birdcage on your head with a live bird inside; that is what Marie Antoinette and the women at the palace did in France around 1785. Do you know why the bathroom is sometimes called "the powder room?" If someone was called a "big wig" would you know what that meant? This book gives a very entertaining history of hair from prehistoric Africa to the millennium. Find out the answers above and more by reading Big Wig.
