Post 18th Century Hairstyles typical or not?
I found some images that have inspired me to attempt to recreate an 18th century hair style even though these are scattered throughout the century, I thought these where a bit more unique. I am hoping you will all be keen on these images. :)

These hairstyles are probably representing hair in a state of undress as a women would never have been seen in public with her locks in such a state.

Marie Antoinette had launched a new fashion trend which included extreme hair styles. Before her, women hair style was pretty normal, simple (see the portraits of very fashionable madam de Pompadour). I am noticing that difference between the portraits done in the early 18th century and the portraits done in the late 18th century.

I like Amy Winehouse’s hair! I don’t know will I ever have enough courage to try something like that. :?

Surely she does. I don’t understand the trick, how she makes her hair to look like that and how her hair style keeps its shape. If I ever try to wear hair like that, people would point their finger at me on the street and I would feel unpleasant. :roll:

Hair is not everything! your face is much nicer than her face! okay, maybe you do not go to such a really good hairdresser but... it is her privilege :D and look at her, she is so so skinny! and not so beautiful in my opinion.

It looks like she washes her hair once a week, does the beehive and then makes it all ratty again.

I prefer this hairstyle on her. http://www.liverpool.com/assets/_files/ ... _large.jpg

Versus the sloppy beehive:

However she does look good in this one, if you do insist on having big hair, at least keep it neat!

I agree that she is a mess but I’ve always felt sympathy for people who have problem adjusting and dealing some personal issues. :? She can look very pretty but only when she is clean and healthy. I like few of her songs and I really love her hair – when its big & neat! :)

I think with good artists who are a mess it's this.

You respect music, but you don't respect yourself.
