Between 1768 and 1770, Legros de Rumigny published a five volume work devoted to the art of female hairdressing. In the last years of the 1760’s, woman’s coiffures increased in height and elaboration, and were decorated with ribbons, lace, jewels, artificial flowers, feathers, and small caps. The one hundred engraved plates contained in the complete set of L’Art de la Coeffure anticipate the towering and extravagant hairstyles that characterized the 1770’s. …pg 18

1863 Arthur's Home Magazine COIFFURE ALEXANDRA Hair is cut short in the front curled, the little curls being arranged over frizettcs, to give the coiffure the shape indicated in the illustration. The rest of the hair parted down the centre, tied on each side behind the ear, then arranged in as many curls as it is possible so to do. Single roses and leaves are dotted here and there amongst the curls in front, and an ornamental comb, with a flower on each side, finishes the head dress behind.
