Amelia-marie: Have you read the book "What Marie-Antoinete Wore To The Revolution"? I'm about half way through it - VERY interesting to anyone intrigued with her life, dresses, hair, etc. There's an entire section about Rose Bertin & Leonard and how they used to construct her lucious "Pouffs" out of wire, layered with ribbon & horse hair & the wearer's hair, etc. to make reach the heights that were desired. They would be so extraordinary that they would have compelte scenes made into them (a pasture with a babbling brook, or a tree with birds singing - and MA's famous ship inspired Pouff!) I'm sur eyou would find it very interesting. The ladies couldn's sleep with them (had to sleep sitting up with large, cone-shaped coverings on them) - often bugs, and small vermon nested in them (which is why they had "elegant" head scratchers to scratch their heads), often their Pouffs were so high they had to lie down in their carriages to protect them against the roof. Once MA began spending more time at Petit Trianon although she began dressing more simply (gausse dresses, etc.) the Pouff remained - HOWEVER, all visitors to that residence had to wear appropriate Pouffs which featured vegatables, fruit, flowers - things that were "simple", to reflect her "Little Village". I highly recommend it - especially for you, as I think there is a lot of great info. within the pages for a hairdresser who wants to know more about the styles of her time.

Post Re: Amazing Hair
Here's an interesting story, albeit American, not French, but it's 18th Century or thereabouts. George and Martha Washington gave a large reception during his first term in a hall with a rather low ceiling. One of the guests came in one of those tall hairdos with ostrich plumes topping it off. Engaged in conversation, she brushed up against the chandelier, and the candles set the plumes on fire. One of Washington's assistants rushed up and smothered the fire with his hand. Must have been a surprise for the lady. :lol:

Wow, how interesting! I always thought wig contains only hair. Now I see this method takes a gage :D
