Bead Coiffure - 1865

This beautiful woman was in the 1865 Lady's Friend Magazine. She is showing her "Bead Coiffure". Imagine the elaborate work, not only with the beads, but weaving them into her hair. Lovely.


  1. Just wondering: There's a Civil War going on and she has the ways and means to mount this structure in her hair for some random ball, never mind maintaining a staff what will untangle the whole thing at 2 in the morning when she returns.
