The Amazing Gravity-Defying Hairstyle!

Well, Halloween is just a few days away, and I have been spending my extra sewing time putting the last few touches on my costume.  I am very excited about this year…but needless to say, it is not a historical costume….I know, I know.  But it has still been a fun challenge!

However, as I have been practicing creating the appropriate hairstyle, I began to realize that there tends to be a lot more of “behind the scenes” apparatus to help create unique and well-coifed hairdos.  And when I think of unique historical hairstyles…I think 1830’s.  The way the hair twists and braids and sticks up is amazing and I’m sure, has many tricks of the trade.  But I do have to say that I am glad these hairstyles have not come back…I am very confident I would not look good in them.  But perhaps you do, and would like to try a look out for yourself!



How would they fit those hats over these hairdos?
