Woman With Unbelievably Long Hair On Victorian Era Photos
Victorian era definitely was weird. It was the time when women rarely cut their hair because long hair was seen as an important part of a female’s appearance.
As Mashable writer Alex Q. Arbuckle points out, ‘An important rite of passage for an adolescent girl during this time was the moment she began to wear her hair up. Previously it would have been worn loose or in plaits and tied up with a ribbon’.
And while a woman’s hair was worn up, it was rarely cut. Just see for yourself.
