18th century hair

Saturday, 30 January 2010

I love these 18th century illustrations of hairstyles, most of which are by M Darly in a book from 1777, except for the one above by J Lockington. Most of them are funny exaggerations, but real life versions not least those favoured by Marie Antoinette would often be 3 feet high and adorned with numerous objects including model ships or pineapples.

Anyway must dash, I have an appointment at the hairdressers...
