If you think you know how to turn up the volume of your hair, you haven’t seen the fashion icons from the 18th century. You might have seen Marie Antoinette before, but did you know that her hairstyle was not a result of her being royal, but rather a response to the latest fashion? Marie Antoinette was actually one of the greatest fashion icons in the 18th century and that worried some people, others totally adored her style. Think of her as an old version of Princess Diana. Or, at least when it comes to being a rule model in style. Marie wasn’t quite as caring as Princess Diana so to do a comparison between them wouldn’t do Princess Diana justice.
The hairstyles during the 18th century was definitely what you today would call avantgarde. The bigger, the better. The higher, the cooler. The most extravagant, the most trendsetting. People filled their hairs with anything. If you would want to imitate the coolest fashion from the 18th century, be ready to throw some boats and birds into your hair. If you don’t get it, have a look at the pictures below and see if you get inspired!
