College #3: 19th Century Hairstyle

I am putting this under the heading of 'college' rather than the previous hair tutorials I have done because this probably isn't something you would be creating for your average night out!  We are doing 'Postiche and Padding' unit of hairdressing where we have to create styles from 19th, 20th and 21st century.

This was my first attempt at a 19th century (1800s) style which I roughly copied from my research.  It's not perfect but I was quite pleased with it so I thought I'd show you all!

  1. I decided on the area where I wanted to fit on the padding.  Because I looked really big I used two pieces.  Then I started pin curling the area.
  2. Finished pin curled area.
  3. I attached the padding and secured with hair pins.
  4. Next I backcombed the hair surrounding the padding to create volume and thickness.
  5. I folded all the backcombed hair in, smoothed the top, and folded it in under itself using more hair pins.
  6. I took the whole front area and curled it using tongs, then ruched it and piled it on top of the head.
