Gibson Hairdo

To really make your costume take you back in time you need the right hair.
So for the historical “Fika” I searched the web for a suited hairdo for my sisters 1900s walking outfit.

The answer was of course the “Gibson hair” – as portrayed by the artist Charles Gibson in the beginning of the 20th century.

I’m not that good at reading picture tutorials, but thankfully we live in the age of youtube.

Using the video it was surprisingly easy to mold my sisters shoulder length hair into a somewhat recognizable Gibson girls hairstyle.20150315_134713More then halfway there.20150315_140003

And the finished hairdo.IMG_20150315_183352 She did get lots of compliments on the hair, and said more then once that she really liked how it tuned out,
and so did I.
