A personal one I was quite proud of was my hair for the balls! Both nights, but Sunday especially, I rocked the curly Grecian look that was quite popular, along with curls about the face.

|not a great picture of me (grumpy face...), but an excellent example of doing Regency-does-Grecian hair!|

|more gold ribbon and face curls|
|the Grecian look with cascading curls, 1802|
|more cascading/piled curls, 1799|
|one last pile of Greek Revival curls|
One thing I'm realizing is that the more reference images I have in my head, the easier it is to take stock when it's time to do my hair and get something fabulous out of it. Well, that and a whole lot of practice!
