By now, the hairstyles were beginning to abandon that austere and hard
look, more characteristic of the frontier woman living a life
of duress and deprivation. The style could begin to emerge from the
mourning influence of Queen Victoria (even though the old monarch still
had another quarter century of life in her). The hairstyle became
rounded and curvy and most feminine. This was a woman with
responsibilities and duties, not merely with time on her hands to attend
to her appearance, but with the method and means to uphold her
significance, while at the same time generating an attractive image.
She was able to be a romantic without being a dance hall floozy.
