Queue: A Chinese hair style, usually with a ponytail.
QUE- as in a line.
remember years ago when your parents told you, well me back in the 1950's that if you keep digging a hole deep enough you will know that you have reached CHINA when you see a CHINAMANS QUE!! (IE) I guess that back then CHINA was at the bottom of the earth?? boy that is a deep hole!!
SORY, ( I E ) is a pony tail. CHINAMEN have QUE,S and girls have PONYTAILS! now you know the rest of the story.
If you look at 18th century European countries, Great Britain and the Americans, men wore either their real hair long and tied back in a queue or wore a wig that was shaped with a queue. It’s a Western hairstyle that had nothing to do with China.
Most men's hair was trimmed with the exception of a queue in back, especially in military styles (often clubbed). For those with short hair a prosthetic queue could be tied in rather than a full blown wig.
The correct spelling is either cue, or queue. https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1.....0.2..0.0.0.......0......gws-wiz.lsH3hJ0vDHE
I didn't get the memo that on the correct spelling that day!. using the word QUE, seems that most every body knew what I meant. jmho.
