Teeze and curl – all you need to know for faking 18th century style hair

April 18, 2012

Stacey Black, the writer of the blog Aestethic Contradiction, also the woman behind Eustratia (mentioned here) – just put up a very simple tutorial for making “Marie Antoinette inspired hair“. If you know how to teeze/backcomb and how to curl your hair – there’s nothing to it! Ofc long hair is recommended. And it would be super cool to have that hair color of hers – but for us who dare not bleach it for one or the other reason (bleaching my hair from black would kill it) – there’s always powder, right!? ;D Or why not buy a wig to style in this matter?

Fly fringe shawl

Many of you are probably familiar with the fly fringe, explained by Vivien, but have you seen a whole garment made out of it? While browsing Nordiska museet’s collections I found this shawl that seems to be just that!

OMG, have y’all seen this!?

I just stumbled upon this pink beauty on Tumblr. It’s from Nordiska museet!

It’s late 18th century, made in silk “atlas”? I have no idea what that is – anyone?

Imma go look through Nordiska Museets collections, because clearly it must have been updated! See ya!
