This one is about hairstyles of sometime in the 80s – not the 1980s 😉 I am talking of around 80 CE!
The portrait statues have such intricate carvings showing the elaborate hairstyles of the rich/royals of that time in Rome. The museum had put up mirrors behind to show the backside without people having to strain our necks. I wondered if their hairstylists did the same back then, like they do today – putting a mirror behind our head and one in front, to show us what they’ve done after cutting/styling our hair 😀.
I’ve never coiffured up like this. Once I had some styling done for a wedding and there were so many pins that my head started aching after a while! I am so glad to live in the 21st century when just a good haircut is enough 😀!

I can’t imagine having any of them but I guess they were the fashion back then.
