The One Where I Do Period Hairstyles On My Sister
(Actually, you probably weren't waiting for it at all. You likely forgot that I even mentioned this idea back in May. Here you go anyway.)
⚘ Emma Woodhouse ⚘
Emma's was rather difficult, I must admit. I had already done this style once before, but it is extra hard to get a tight, curly look for the bun. I am satisfied with it. The twist is perhaps a bit more exaggerated than it should be, but it is only inspired by Emma's hairstyle. Overall, I do love the look. My sister does, too, and would have me do it every Sunday if it weren't so complex!
⚘ Queen Victoria ⚘
The thing about Victoria's hairstyles is that they must be tight and sleek...and that takes a good amount of hairspray, let me tell you. (I tried to hide the bobbies as best I could, but you can see some peeking out.) We were quite pleased with the way this one turned out because it was totally an experiment on my part. I just made it up based on a picture of Jenna Coleman's side profile as the Queen in ITV's Victoria.
⚘ Elizabeth... ⚘
We're not sure on this one. I was going for an Elizabeth Swann look, but then we thought it looked more like Elizabeth Poldark... So I'll leave it up to you: which Elizabeth is this?
This one is far from perfect, but again, I am making it up based on what I recall from Georgian styles like in Pirates and Poldark. I think it's quite pretty, anyway. (Though I'd like to completely redo and perfect it.)
This is my Downton-inspired one. It was based off a picture of Lady Mary from behind, and I tried my best to imitate it. It certainly has the Edwardian style I was going for, but I'm not sure if it's quite "Mary". (Definitely not Edith, Sybil, or Rose, though, so we're naming it after the eldest Crawley sister.)
Which one was your favorite? Tell me in the comments below. And, if you liked this post, please feel free to leave some suggestions/requests of your favorite period drama hairstyles for a part 2!:)
***Also, don't forget: I am doing an Ask Me Anything! The comments are still open to more questions if you'd like to leave me a few. I'll be doing an answer post sometime around the end of the month.
Thank you to everyone who's already left some questions for me. I do so appreciate it!
