Victorian Women Hairstyles: One of the Most Uncomfortable Fashions of all Times

Women in the the Victorian era wore beautiful long dresses, appealing makeup, and elegant hairstyles.

A woman’s hair was often thought to be one of her most valuable assets. Styles varied quite a bit throughout the nearly 7 decades of Queen Victoria’s reign, with everything from simple middle parts to elaborate pieces made from human hair being in fashion. Accessories such as combs, pearls, hats and bonnets each had their time in the spotlight throughout the 1800s.

  1. I don't know about "uncomfortable"...I think they were used to the weight of the hair and the pins used so it was probably not any more uncomfortable than any other style.
