1820 hair


The hairstyle pictured here occurs at the period just before the Victorian era, when Queen Victoria was at the greatest influnce on the world of fashion. The hair is dark and elegant with many of the later Edwardian effects (flowers and fruit in the hair). During the period between now and a hundred years later, hair was be dark, austere, and the clothing much like a mourning dress. When Queen Victoria was to lose her beloved Prince Albert, she went into a lifetime of mourning and all who gathered around her respectfully imitated the sad queen. This woman from the early nineteenth century still shows life and loveliness, but there is just a hint of the darker years to come. She has added the life of flowers to hair to demonstrate her own capacity to bring forth life, despite a veil of sadness that appears to intrude upon her visage. 15hqqy.
