sky high maintainence
allo! how’s your wednesday going?
i’m taking a tech break to go through some images before getting back to working on an excel sheet.
i never get tired of poring over these engravings from the past and thought i’d share them with you today. i hope you get a kick out of them.
not sure what it was about the summer of ’77…the summer of 1777 that is…
i think we romanticize 18th century life, the delicate clothing, detail and traditions…
but what never ceases to amaze me is the imagination that this generation had, how they made it up as they went along and seemed to have, in a very dark time, found a way to enjoy life by being playful with their appearance, and in today’s case, specifically, their hair.
lord knows what i would do without my curling iron, i’d be a hot mess pretty much every single day.
thank god for the patience of hairdressers.
anyway at a point it becomes hard to tell if these women were really spending this much time on their hair or these are exaggerations.
when i go to the salon it takes awhile even in this day and age.
how were they achieving these great heights?
as a jersey girl maybe i’m particularly fascinated
and in jersey we laugh at ourselves.
so finding the satire engravings was the piece de resistance on this little image adventure.
even the men weren’t immune to either the trends or being targets to parody the style
young and old, they were all on the big hair bandwagon.
such silly fun!
well i gotta run, hope you enjoyed this little diversion. have a bonne journee!
