Hairstyles through the Victorian Age, by Mimi Matthews.
In my previous post, A Victorian Lady's Guide to Hair Care, we discussed brushing, washing, oiling, and pomading the hair. These steps were essential in a 19th century lady's hair routine. However, in the Victorian era, it was not enough to have clean, healthy, lustrous tresses.
