    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.
