Victorian Hairstyles & tutorial

 I actually, finally found a hair dressing tutorial from 1871, the instructions themselves are a bit complicated.

  4. This is actually all I have been able to find that is historical in regards to women's hair styling of the time.

    I would suggest going to your local library and ordering/checking out as many books as you can find that have anything to do with women and the Victorian Era.

  5. Always a good place to try: Costumer's Manifesto. Type that into google and explore. It's wonderful for historically accurate information across history.

  6. I’m really amazed with your posting skills as well as with the layout on your blog site. Is this a paid style or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the pleasant quality writing, it is rare to see a great site such as this one these days.I recently came to know about, their Man and Van Kingston are very effective.
