Like this one for example: I love Keira's Pouf! It's has some decoration but it is so simple which makes it look so elegant!

I agree. Portraits are the best example. I hope that is true.

I highly doubt they would wear huge poufs among their friends, I don't think friends competed to see whose pouf was larger! :lol:

Marija Vera---where did you find that 2nd satrical engraving posted above? It says circa 1750, but that can not be right, since the towering hairstyles did not come into fashion until the 1770s. In the 50s, styles were much simpler. The clothing in the engraving also suggests the 70s.

I agree the simpler styles are very classy and elegant, but I also like the more outlandish style of the 1770s for both men and women: I guess that would make me an ultra-fashionable fop :biggrin:

Note on 18th Century French dress: there were really only two states of dress for the aristocracy: formal and---I don't know a better word for it than 'undress.' That is, dressing gowns and robes worn in one's private chambers. Outside one's private rooms, they were always dressed formally, fully and elaborately for every occassion, even quiet visits from friends; excepting perhaps hunting and military costumes. The concept of 'casual dress' did not come into being until the mid 1780s, when formality began to be rejected in favor of simple and comfortable---a trend started in France by Marie Antoinette herself.

I found it on some web page, maybe just the year is wrong. It is strange.:?

Here is something about that :lol: -

"What! Is this my son Tom?", a June 24th 1774 caricature on extreme "Macaroni" fashions of the 1770s (with a "big hair" hairstyle which echos women's aristocratic styles of the time).

Poem in caricature:

Our wise Forefathers would express
Ev'n Sensibility in Dress ;
The modern Race delight to Shew
What Folly in Excess can do.
The honest Farmer come to town, [i.e. to London]
Can scarce believe his Son his own.
If thus the Taste continues Here,
What will it be another Year?

Post Re: Tutorial to 1770's Hair (wig)
I just figured out a way to wear our coiffures really big without straining our neck, it's actually quite simple. Instead of using cages, or some use chicken wires, we could use a big or tall piece of styrafoam to layer our hairs on top of. Much lighter and safer. That way we can be as extravagant and put as many accessories as we can without hurting our neck.

I would recommend using a wig for this, not your actual hair.
