Gibson Girl hair

Another thing I've hoped to achieve is the "Gibson Girl" look. When I saw an announcement from Miriel Enfield that she has reopened Miriel, and that among the hair the store offers is one called "Gibson Girl", I had to investigate.

I'm very pleased. It's not quite the "big hair" of some of the illustrations and photos--I was surprised to discover that Charles Dana Gibson was from New England, not Texas :)--but it's very much in the proper style, and I'm very happy with it.

The above photo, taken in Caledon Brigadoon, shows the results. It may need a little editing to fit my head, but I'm quite pleased. Thank you, Miriel!
