    This book is definitely more about hairstyles than 18th century makeup and accessories. I could this this being useful for cosplayers, LARP-ers, Halloween, parades, etc. The book gives you step-by-step directions and images to follow. It also provides a list of everything you will need beforehand (most of these require hair extensions or some type of volumizer to create the fullest look.

    Perhaps if I attend the Williamburg Christmas parade, I'll revisit this one. It's super interesting, and provides historical explanations of hair and other sartorial choices of the 18th century.
