Neo-Regency Hair

I've always loved men's hair from the Regency period... so wild and untamed, but at the same time so calculated and deliberate... I've been attempting it for a while now, but just can't get it right on my own...

Prince Regent George IV had the right idea...  and so did this little article...

... and so did the costume directors of Vanity Fair...

...Colonel Thomas Pinckney, Jr. was obviously very stylish as seen in this c. 1801-2 miniature from the Gibbes Museum, recently on display at the Winter Antiques Show...

 
Neo-Regency hairstyles from a recent Burberry Prorsum show... amazing how right at home these hair styles would have been 200 years ago... now it's time for me to master it for the upcoming Charleston International Antiques Show Preview Party...
