hairstyle archaeology

I've wasted hours today reading about Janet Stephen's research and watching her youtube demos recreating ancient, Medieval and Renaissance hairdos.

Her amateur scholarship is sticking a pin in the long-held assumptions among historians about the complicated, gravity-defying styles of ancient times. Basically, she has set out to prove that the ancients probably weren't wearing wigs after all.

"This is my hairdresserly grudge match with historical representations of hairstyles," says Ms. Stephens, who works at Studio 921 Salon & Day Spa, which offers circa 21st-century haircuts.

Her coiffure queries began, she says, when she was killing time in the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore back in 2001. A bust of the Roman empress Julia Domna caught her eye. "I thought, holy cow, that is so cool," she says, referring to the empress's braided bun, chiseled in stone. She wondered how it had been built. "It was amazing, like a loaf of bread sitting on her head," says Ms. Stephens.
This is a particularly good video of her work:

I read Ancient Roman Hairdressing: On (Hair)Pins and Needles a couple years ago, but didn't know she'd done other eras!

Don't discourage him, please.

Dunno. I opened a news article about some flower show this morning, and there it was. The rest is kind of a blur.

I was really impressed with the simplicity and beauty of the ancient Greek hairdos she researched, though they seemed to be optimized for thick, curly hair. I could totally do those styles back when I used to perm my hair.

I found the reason for the frontal style, the hair wrapped around the cord to, in some cases, mask thinning where it is quite common in women. A few centuries later, some Italian Renaissance women shaved or plucked their hair back from the forehead, I suspect for the same reason.

If all you have is lemons...
