Victorian Hairstyles for Women
Curly hair was meant to indicate a sweeter temperament, while straight-haired girls were considered reserved or even awkward. A woman’s hair was profoundly important to the overall effect she was able to make. Reaching the age when the hair could be put up was a rite of passage in her life, and often there were several interim stages, where a plait would be loosely put up with a ribbon, to signify the coming event.
