I have researched quite a bit recently concerning the hair and beauty trends of the Edwardian Age. Thanks to Downton Abbey, some of these looks are making a comeback and these tutorials are a lot easier to find than they once were.
I have a lot of great sites in my arsenal now and decided to share. Perhaps, just maybe, there is another Edwardian fanatic out there who could benefit. At the very least, I can come back and find them again and again and again. I plan to post a links at least every couple of weeks. We’ll see how it goes.
This list’s theme is Gibson Hair Tutorials. Some are very modern and so easy. I have recreated the one below in only a few minutes. I love to wear my hair up, so it’s nice to have a few more options than a bun or ponytail.
This is by far the easiest I have found so far and my favorite this week. I have done it almost every day. Add a cute hat and it’s a perfect modern Edwardian look. Check out Freckled Fox for this great hairstyle and many, many more.
The blogger at Locks of Elegance has brilliant hair tutorials from a variety of eras that are some of the most authentic and easy to follow I have seen so far. I haven’t tried this style yet, but I will probably this week.
It’s no secret I adore Mary Pickford (see the first photo on this page). This tutorial is somewhat involved and requires a couple of hair accessories I don’t yet own, but rest assured, I will. They are not expensive and next time I am out, I plan to buy them and give it a try. The tutorial itself is quite funny because the stylist uses her boyfriend to demonstrate the tutorial. I enjoyed watching it and the results look very close to Mary’s actual look.
The tutorial creator of this video is very cute and creates a very nice nod to Lady Sybil. I love the end look and plan to try this as well in the coming weeks.
Enjoy. I will be posting more posts as I find them. I would love more links to awesome vintage hairstyles, so if you know of any, post them in the comments. In the meantime, follow my Pinterest board “Historically Romantic Today” for more links to modern Edwardian tutorials, makeup, and clothing ideas.
