I have rather flat hair that sits uneventfully atop a pea sized head. Therefore, I am an enthusiastic advocate for big hair. Anthropologie’s August catalog incorporates some 19th century hair throwbacks. Witness the following:
And now this:
By the way, I love Elizabeth McGovern. I’ve only seen her in Downton Abbey, a Poirot episode, and that movie, She’s Having Kevin Bacon’s Baby. But I loved her in all of them! The hair though? I am a little ambivalent towards this late 19th/early 20th century ‘do. Yes, it is big which checks one of my boxes, but piled on top of the head. Where is it fastened? How long is it, really?
Anthropologie’s take on it is lovely though. They tend to choose interesting models and this works for her and for the spread. It flatters the bold necklines and statement jewelry pieces dotted throughout. Altogether, I give it a thumbs up on the styling.
