Just saw this interesting video that shows drawings of a lot of historical hair styles. The range of styles was surprising, and I thought some folks around here might enjoy it, too.

Cool! My favorite is the end, complete with very subtle thumb-animation. :)

The 20th century video is interesting too.

Wow, that was e very interesting video to watch, thank you for sharing! :)
I absolutely loved ''The Horned buns'' in 15th century. I actually watched a film a week ago and the actress had a similar hairstyle. I was wondering if I could make it with my hair and I'm glad I came across the name of it.
Edit: I actually searched for a tutorial and I couldn't find one, so if any of you have any idea how I can make the hairstyle, I would be very happy!

In case you didn't know about her, you should check out Janet Stephen's youtube (https://www.youtube.com/user/jntvstp). When most historians were going "well idk maybe greek women wore wigs all the time?????" she took a look at the styles, took a look at the tools they'd have, and said to herself "I can do that."

I was about to post her as well! And she only uses period appropriate tools/archaeologically correct replicas.

Here is a modified way of doing something a bit like horns, if you don't have the special padding/wiring that they used for making horns (wrapping hair around that shape):
Janet Stephens - Nuremberg Chronicles Hairstyle (1493) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zEP8WHQ1CRE (she uses the French twist/roll technique here)

But traditionally, one would need special wiring forms for shaping the cornettes perfectly:
