Le Modiste: Papillote Curls

Madame Grand by Elizabeth Lousie Vigee Le Brun 1783

Achieving the 18th century hairstyles alludes many of us who prefer a wash and go style in our everyday lives.  However, American Duchess found a YouTube presentation that I thought was fabulous.  If you follow the Duchess you may have already seen this.  However, if you do not please take a look at this presentation.  I found it easy to follow and feel that is doable by even those who do not normally fuss with their hair on a daily basis.

I hope that you will enjoy this YouTube video if you have not seen it before.  Those of us with super curly hair already may not require this method but it may help smooth things out a bit.  I have fine and frizzy hair that I have to flat iron if I want a straight style.  So, I will have to experiment with this method to see how to best utilize the techniques the Ms. Stephens shares.
