18th Century Hair & Wig Styling: History & Step-by-Step Techniques combines meticulous research with easy-to-follow instructions that will enable you to create historically accurate hairstyles and wigs of the 18th century.

This book includes a detailed history of men's and women's hairstyles from 1700 to 1799 in France, Great Britain, and the United States: which styles were worn when, how hair and wigs were styled, and the cultural role of both. 

Practical techniques are provided for styling hair and wigs that will be useful to anyone who wants to learn more about historical hairstyling, from amateurs to professionals. While information about historical techniques is included, the emphasis is on modern, practical methods and products that will achieve a historically accurate look.

25 step-by-step demonstrations show how to create individual hairstyles -- 22 for women, 3 for men -- spanning the century, and suggestions are included for ways to vary each.

This book is perfect for historical reenactors, amateur costumers, and theater/film professionals who want to create authentic-looking 18th century hairstyles and wigs.  It will also provide a solid foundation and fun jumping-off point for anyone who wants to create historically influenced fantasy styles!
