Gibson Girls

I learned how to do the Gibson Girl hairstyle in makeup class today. I'm not very good at it yet but just the idea has rekindled my love for the turn of the century and romanticism.

Camille Clifford in this photo reminds me of a mischievous girl I know...

More Gibson Girl talk later. Perhaps even some photos of my first attempt at doing the style on myself. By the way, who knew that they teased hair back in the 1890s? Why did my association between teasing and the 60s or the 80s make me think that it belonged firmly in the latter half of the 20th century?
