1863 AMAZON SHIP HAIR LOOKS
Hi, and thank YOU sooooo much in advance for your help on this show.
Below are the looks we're hoping for on this show, but we'll need your help. We will be limited in what we can do in the amount of time and with the manpower we'll have. SOOO If you are able to come with your hair and facial hair as close to one of these options as possible, it would be amazing, and really help a lot.
You will be English Immigrants, just leaving for America. You should be clean and tidy. Please come as close to any of these looks as you can and we'll take it from there. The instructions are below:
MEN & BOYS
Men were clean shaven, wore long mutton chops, mustaches, goatees, chin straps, or an occasional groomed beard. Nothing too long, as these immigrants were just leaving England. Also NO STUBBLE. We'd LOVE to get a variety of these looks, so pick what you have or like, and it will be fun. :)
Medium length, just to the nape, no longer, and parted on the side.
WOMEN & GIRLS
Must be clean and dry, with TEXTURE (lots of waves & curls).
Please set your hair the night before (if using a heatless method) or before you come (if using heat). Remove any curlers or braids just after you arrive. That will help lock in curl.
If you have pink foam rollers, electric hot sticks, or benders, they’ll work great too. Here’s the method for curling it this way:
Here is a video tutorial of another way to prep the hair for this show if you can braid. https://youtu.be/pfOwWIVF8NU (We need more volume than what we showed in this video, so if you prefer to do braids, please do at least 5 or 6 braids that start at the roots and go all the way to the ends.)
They didn't wear any makeup in this period, so it's a no-makeup look.
If any makeup is used, it should be invisible to the eye, concealer, light blush, and lip balm. No visible mascara should be used, and no lash Extensions (unless they are trimmed to look completely natural)
Nails: Please remove all nail polish and fake nails prior to arrival.
Thanks so much!
