Married Women's hair style (1)



In early Joseon Dynasty,
Korean married women used very big and heavy wigs named "Gache",
to do up their hairs splendidly.

Women thought that
the higher and bigger wig means more beauty and power.

※ You Need To Know This Point.
Joseon dynasty, about 500 years, is not short period.
VERY MANY things had changed and turned.
So is the costume and word.
therefore a few designations overlap or mixed with other word,
or one word refer to several hair styles.

I tried to make you see the most accurate information possible ^_^
