Victorian hairstyles that enliven a glamorous and elegant era

The Victorian era made a major contribution to the fashion and beauty industry and inspired many famous designs and looks. Victorian hairstyles are particularly famous for their elegance and complexity. Have you ever wondered how you get such a hairstyle today or how you could customize it for that particular time? Well, maybe we can give some answers to these questions.

First let’s review some of the most popular Victorian hairstyles. The sugar curls were very popular and women got that look by using the hot iron to create curls in their hair. This does not seem to be all right at the moment, but fortunately we have less dramatic tools to use.


Other famous trends are the Marcel Waves hairstyle, which was also obtained with the hot iron but in other ways. I think you have to be there to understand how it works. Victorian braided hairstyles were also very popular and they took various forms, including the braided ponytails or the braided up-do.

Although the hairstyles and their original looks are outdated, their classic elegance allows them to adapt and transform to suit a modern lifestyle. Some Victorian hairstyles are actually very easy to customize and even have their own modern versions like the Gibson Girl Hairstyle that became the loose knot or the Titus Hairstyles that was similar to the newer shorthair hairstyles.
