Though more than five centuries old, the hairstyle pictured here shows a
timeless elegance. From the side curls and the chignon, the woman could
only have been attended by servants. The youthful red-head did not have
to cover her hair nor detract from her overall beauty by wearing
excessive jewelry. She is simple and elegant in her day-to-day costume.
The wife or daughter of a well-to-do nobleman, the subject has chosen to
sport a hairstyle that is representative of the times. Without
photographs or magazines to demonstrate the styles, she would have
encountered these through noblewomen who had attended the royal court.
