Elizabethan headdress

Since I’m going on about hair- here’s a pic of me trying out my new Elizabethan headdress complete with bun holder. Wow is my hair thick.  Enjoy. Mic's new Eliabethan headdress

delicious hair

Can’t help m’self- once you get started there’s a wealth of infomration out there. I found some lovely hair sites and several with step by step instructions- now why did I just get my hair trimmed? I might have used those extra 4 inches of length.  Luckily there are lots of possibilities even so! I start looking cuz we have a Victorian show but of course other eras are featured too. http://intimelyfashion.com/hair/main.html this has a sub-link for some excellent Victorian instructions http://frazzledfrau.tripod.com/titanic/hair.htm http://erasofelegance.com/fashion/hairstyles.html has a nice overview Some interesting graphics were here: http://karenswhimsy.com/vintage-hairstyles.shtm and one with costumes and hair which i found showed an interesting mix of clothing styles including even a rather late  (well late for the costume’s history) sacque back.  See the grahpic. victorian hair and costume karenswhimsy.com/public-domain-images/victorian-dresses/victorian-dresses-3.shtm but this one is a veritable dictionary of what one can do with hair- i was stunned. http://www.dreamweaverbraiding.com/braid_examples/braid_examples_other.htm Victorian three- braid (also some called it Gibson braid)
