    How to add a false braid to your own hair

    Do it yourself - Habioku. A knot that forms three pieces so you can easily add false hair to your braids.

    Victorian ~ You can add hairpieces to the sides of your hair. If you use hair that closely matches your own and with some practice or help from a friend, you'll be able to incorporate them to lengthen your own hair for period styles. The easiest way to attach false hair to the sides is to braid them in as in the Godey's print seen below. [Forgot to mention the print is from Godey's Lady's Book, September 1862]

    Note: she shows hair taping, adding extra to your braid (i wanna try some bright yarn!!) Beautiful historical paintings, and even bang treating. All italian style, i think.

As demonstrated by a highly exotic wax-resist dyed cotton cloth found in an eastern-Han tomb in Niya at Minfeng of Xinjiang, wax-resist dyeing might have been introduced from abroad.
