When I started this blog several years ago, my focus was on 1790s, but despite starting there, I have not made very many 1790s things since. I do love this period, with all the crazy stuff happening with fashion in France particularly, and I'm excited to be sporting a new '90s dress in a couple weeks.
But now...to the hair...
The 1790s was a decade of flux. We see fully powdered hedgehog coifs next to loose, natural, and almost straggly Merveilleuse styles. I love them all, but for the first wearing the the Chintz gown, I want to try something more loose and wild, something like these...
|Princess Anna Gagarina (1777-1805) by Jean-Louis Voille|
|Mme JL Germain by Marie-Gabrielle Capet (French artist, 1761-1818)|
|Self Portrait, Louise Elisabeth Vigee Le Brun (1755-1842) painted 1790|
|Marie-Victoire Jobbe, wife of the architect JF Heurtrier, c. 1790|
|Comtesse Golovin by Louise Elisabeth Vigee Le Brun, 1797|
Jen has a lot more hair than me to begin with, but that's what Sally Beauty Supply is for, right? :-)
