1860s Braided Hairstyle
Civil War Taffeta Day Dress

This late 1860s braided hairstyle is inspired by this 1870 fashion plate (the one in the bottom left corner) and by Empress Elisabeth’s braided hairstyles. Here’s also a similar hairstyle (the Catalina). I parted my hair down the middle, made two braids, laid them into loops and secured them with hairpins.
