1870S HAIR INSPIRATION

1870S HAIR INSPIRATION

by admin, December 24, 2014

To go with my fluffy net dress I am finally going to be able to make a wig to replicate this hairstyle somewhat. As it is a solid sculpt there is some liberty taken with the actual ability of hair to stay up like that…. But I am going to try and ventilate some lace and make a part as well as hair line to at least disguise my own lack of hair.

   

 

And of course this style is most modernly accessible as the seen in Portrait of a Lady:

 

So my wig will be smoother like PoaL and potentially made with four or fine strand plaits because they look so cool and are pretty easy 🙂 Over, over, under. Over, over under. Or; over, under, over, over. Over, over, under, over.

Haven’t yet figured out a six strand but hey.

Oh the wig will also be dark purple 🙂 I was going to use a natural colour but meh, I have natural coloured wigs anyway 🙂
