1864 hair


The woman's hairdo is intriguing as it combines two uplifted styles. She has more than merely posed for a CDV (Carte de Visite), as she has chosen to have her presence recorded for posterity. She knew that the photograph would outlive her, and she had to be the best she could. The collar and the lace proclaim her to be possibly the wife of a reverend. Regardless, she is of high-standing within her society. The hairstyle appears to be unique, though it may be characteristic of specific location and period of time. It is a precursor of the wedding updos that would eventually become standard for brides well into the twentieth century. 15hqqy.
