Thy Crowning Glory

 {Source for 3 photos above}

INSPIRATION 2014 #14: One of the reasons that jewelry, hair wreaths & sculptures and scrapbooks were created was that the Victorians considered hair a woman's "crowning glory" ~ I suppose it must have been a badge of honor to have the longest and prettiest hair in the neighborhood! Women spent many hours maintaining their tresses ~ as there are many cabinet cards portraying women and their hair from this time period, it is obvious that hair was an important part of a woman's beauty. Visit Rapunzel's Delight to peruse a huge collection of photos and history of hair.
