Does The Number of Curls in Barrister's Wig Mean Anything?


Does the number of curls on a barrister's wig denote anything?
Liz, Worcester Park



Name: David, Sutton
Qualification: Had to hire a High Court barrister
The curls are issued on every case they win. Hence why judges' wigs are so long.
James O'Brien: I think he was yanking your chain. Why don't you see barristers with more than three then?

Name: Jessica, Wandsworth
Qualification: Barrister
Curls on the wig are meaningless. Curls depend on the size of your head and where you bought it.
