Time for some hairdo pictures! The lady on the far left was likely photographed in the late 1860s. Her hair is not quite as high as the styles of the 1870s, but she has the frizzled little “bangs” and the waved sides typical of the late 1860s. Note her fancy neck ribbon. The young lady in the middle has braided her thick hair (or is wearing a “fall”) and has created a coronet on the top of her head. This picture is dated 1876. The photograph on the far right shows a most elaborate 1800s hairstyle–almost reminiscent of the 1960s “beehive,” if you ask me!
