“My hair was slicked down with a part. But that was before I discovered the blow-dryer. Now I’m fabulous.” ― Barry Manilow

Photography Challenge: Victorian-Style Long Hair Portrait

This was a self-assignment that I did in tribute to all of those fascinating portraits of Victorian women who let their floor-length tresses down in the photography studios of yesteryear.

Victorians considered long hair to be the epitome of femininity, and some took this to a wonderful extreme.

My real hair is actually only about 24″ long, so I had to add some longer locks in Photoshop.
