I am a fashion design student with a huge interest in historical costume. For years before entering design school I independently researched historical fashion, but found that practical step-by-step instructions for period hairstyles were hard to come by. This website is my response to that! I hope you enjoy.
The plucked brow and forehead was continued into the renaissance. It was popular for women to before marriage to wear their hair with loose and long with a center part. After marriage women covered their hair and continued to pluck their hairline and eyebrows. Women began experimenting with braids, and many intricate and individual styles developed. Check out Dream Weaver’s website for fascinating information and instruction on Renaissance braiding techniques. The hair during this period was also styled by using curling irons.
The goal of this website is to present accurate, step-by-step photo instructions for historically inspired hairstyles. We are still under construction, so be sure to check back later! If there is anything you think we are missing, be sure to send us a request!
