I recently cropped my hair at chin length and dyed it red again, so with a ball coming up, I thought it was time to play with wigs again. I ordered a half wig from Amazon, and set to work using the now sold out book, 18th Century Hair & Wig Styling: History & Step-by-Step Techniques by Kendra Van Cleave. All of the curls and "buckles" were purchased at a local wig shop so I could more easily match the color. I got as close as I could. Then, using a piece of PVC pipe, an entire can of hair spray, and an entire package and a half of bobby pins, I was able to make some approximation of 18th century hair.
