By Maureen A. Taylor. I can’t help it. I love the hairstyles and facial hair in photographs so much I’m actually thinking about a second volume of my Fashionable Folks: Hairstyles 1840-1900 book. The curls and whorls of nineteenth century styles definitely provide insights into your ancestor’s fashion sense and their personality. This week I’m sharing three images from my growing collection of purchased images of women’s tresses and men in beards. In this 1860s carte de visite, a middle aged woman wears her hair in the style of her youth

I was excited for this book, but found it to be disappointing in almost every way. If you know nothing about 19th century fashion history and would like a light read that you can finish in one sitting, then perhaps this book might be entertaining and interesting to you. However, if you were hoping to find a well organized chronology of images with supporting research that documents the specifics of hair styles, what they were called contemporaneously, or tidbits of any other specific information such as people who wore certain hairstyles or helped to popularize them, you will barely find any of that in this book. After a "Fast Facts" and "Fun Facts" section (one page each-- which appear to have been targeted towards a grade school audience), the book is organized into chapters, each focusing on one decade. Every chapter contains on average between 12-20 images, the majority of chapters closer to the low end of the spectrum. The print quality is poor, low-contrast grayscale--a few images are terribly pixelated!-- and many of the images chosen feel almost arbitrary, and often do not even show the hair style of the sitter very clearly. Most maddening of all, however, are the image captions. With the exception of a few, the majority of them are redundant and completely subjective in a way that makes it seem as if the author is struggling to find something to say to fill up space. ie. pointing out that the sitter is smiling, standing, lovely, or has a serious expression, etc. Others use whatever autobiographical information the author might have, such as detailing an officers rank and service for 9/10 of the description and then ending by addressing his hair: "He wore longish hair and a full chin beard and mustache." That is seriously a direct quote from the book. Other than being 'the photo detective' (I'm guessing a self-prescribed title) it seems highly unlikely that this author has any real historical expertise, nor the inclination to attempt to achieve any.

The book is broken down into decades and within each decade the author gives a brief overview of the hair styles worn by both men and women. The good thing about this book is that it includes men. Often times I read books about the Victorian Era and fashion and the men are not mentioned. So it was nice for the author to include the guys. After the brief summary the author would present a number of photos and explain the hair style and clothes. Within the book we have some fun facts about hair(I wish there were more of them) And also hair ads from the 1800s(interesting but not really what I cared to read about). Each page has a picture and then a paragraph or two explaining the hairstyle (and often clothes) of the people in the photo.

I think the author does a good job of presenting her information. Although, she does make a few mistakes. On page 25 she comments that a woman is holding a sleeping baby. I looked at it again, and thought oh no, that child is dead. I would have liked additional photos. Also, it would have been nice to see some ethnic photos of African Americans(although they are hard to come by).

The book is a quick read. I finished it in an hour and I'm not a fast reader. I think this book is good for those who are looking to break down the hairstyles for both men and women in various decades. This book will go in my collection for future reference. However, the price tag is a bit steep in my opinion.

This is a great book if you're tired of your modern 21st century hairdo! Just kidding. Fashionable Folks is a book I'm using for research about hairstyles at that time. It is interesting to see that in the 19th century, popular trends in hairstyles are very much as they are today. Styles come and go, and extremely popular styles resurge. This book is also very helpful if you have some old photos of relatives and you're trying to place a date on when they were photographed. Amazon is a great way to find books for research.

Though I can't say this is a good book, it's not a bad book either. As it is only 60 years of hairstyles I expected it to be a better balance between the years.

This is an interesting book and can see the value of the information. Although it did not help me uncover any revelations, it did narrow the timeline possibilities of the picture.

A nice book about hairstyles and how to do such hairsyles from 1840-1900. What styles were "in" which were not and why.

Ms. Taylor is great at photograph evaluation and her books are always interesting.
