    Well, I'd think they'd keep those hairstyles for days on end. In hot weather. =o

    I don't see how those hairstyles would sustain a night's sleep, no matter how carefully they slept. All these portraits are of high society people (they could afford a portrait by Ingres after all...) who had a host of servants to make their 'do everyday. Several times if necessary.

    I like that one. Her hair. Her "I'm so much better than you" expression. She's cool.

    Thank you for posting these, Medvssa!

    The 19thC hairstyles have inspired me to do more braided buns and braid/bun combinations

    Well, they would often sleep in a sitting position. So the hair would only be touched up in the morning.

    Quite a few would wear powdered wigs.

    And the personal hygiene would've sent us kicking and screaming today. As it was often a matter of covering up what was already there instead of having a good wash
