This weekend during the historic picknick I got quite a few coments on my hair (even though my sister got more), and since I normaly have short red hair, I had to confess I was wearing a wig.
Not very unusual for 18th century dress up, were you need tons of hair arranged in complicated ways to get the right look.
I only own one wig that is remotley sutable for 18th century, and it is in a poor state. (you can read about my previous attempt at styling the thing Here)
I have ordered Demodes new book on 18th century hair styling, but since it wont arrive in yet another month, I figured I had to try to remodel the wig on my own.
When I took it out it was still wet, and I let it sit over night and the next day.
I used my fingers to mes up the curls and to gove them some bounce.
And finaly finished and styled with a bow and hat.All and all I’m pretty pleased by the result, but I would have liked it to look softer in the front hairline to make it les wigy. Hopefully the new book will help me with that.
