Check out this cool slideshow! It's interesting to see where we've come from, and how much (and how little!) has changed over thousands of years of braiding...

Now I want to try renaissance braiding again...

Ah, this one again. ^_^ It's a pity that the one era that I do know a fair bit about (medieval) is complete rubbish. It rather impairs my trust in the rest of it...

How can one talk about Egyptian hairstyles without mentioning the elaborate use of horsehair? I've two degrees in history, and most of this is...less than accurate.

Very good point. The drawings are beautifully done, however.
