The olden times have a queer charm and when it is about grooming and fashion, present trends always draw upon the past. The hairstyles also follow the same path and many of them have a dash of artistry popular during the former times. The Victorian hairstyles are one such style that is still admired by the women for their elaborate and beautiful look. Though today it is nearly impossible for them to wear the style on a daily basis, they do take out time to decorate their crowning glory in the Victorian fashion while preparing for a party or prom night.
The Victorian hairstyles have all kinds of hues from plain to fancy; each with a distinct finery and elegance. Since the Victorian times were known for their prudishness women made efforts to sport a neat and graceful look that would give them a demure and neat display. Most of the women wore their hair in updos and buns. Curls were also very popular especially among the young women who styled their tresses into ringlets and swirls. The history of the Victorian hairstyles is quite rich and interesting that would look more lucid with these 29 images showing women in 29 different Victorian hairstyles.
Hair, as it happens, is an amazing indicator of time. Anyone can tell you this after going through old photo albums, looking at vintage advertisements, and watching old movies and television shows. Hair speaks volumes about certain decades- even specific years!
While I expected most of these styles to be too strange for modern use, or too time-consuming to be practical, I was pleasantly surprised to find that many historical hairstyles are not only fetching, but completely doable! The Victorian era has some of the best. Let’s have a look at the time period’s predominant coiffures. Perhaps you can take one or two of them for a spin!
This style sees some popularity over the past few years, so at least by some Victorian standards, your style will not be too embarrassing to always use
