I can't tell you how excited I am about the publication of 18th Century Hair & Wig Styling by Kendra Van Cleve! Not only is Kendra a fabulously talented costumer & wig stylist but she is also a meticulous researcher and clever writer. I've taken several of her excellent 18th century hair and make-up classes at Costume College and I'm so excited to have all that information (and more since she has been doing even more research and styling for this project) at my fingertips in book form. Really it's hard to say what I'm more excited to get my grubby hands on, the over 20 women’s & men’s hair styles demonstrated in the book or the yummy research/history. Either way this book fills a much needed gap and is sure to become a much referenced and treasured resource.
Of course this project can only happen if she gets enough funding to self-publish this book. She is offering pre-order sales, with discounts and extra goodies but the offers end January 31st 2014. If you are at all interested in hair, wigs and/or the 18th century pre-order while you still can so we can all enjoy the wealth of info Kendra wants to share with us! Because if this project falls through and there is no book I will sit down and weep. A lot.
Please don't make me cry.
To pre-order or contribute to the book, go to Indiegogo.
