Period Hairstyling period correct hairstyling is not so cute. For our immersion event tomorrow, I decided I really should learn how to put my hair up 1855 style. Two trips to Rite Aid and a few hours later, here is the result:

It was only after Crusoe quit cracking up and stopped referencing Obi Wan Kenobi that he was able to even take these pictures. But in all seriousness, I am portraying Ann Elizabeth Bigelow and this style is pretty darn close to her photo in 1854.

Here's to fantastic Candlelight Tours! I'll post some pics of the event next week. Have a beautiful fall weekend!

I Just looked through my book about civil war fashions and they were talking about hair, it was styled that way to emphasize wideness of the face. anyway, you did a great job and it does look like the pic so bravo! :)
