In the sixteenth century – the period of the Renaissance – women of the upper classes dared really the limit with hairstyles: came to rip hair hairline of the forehead to give the appearance of a face higher! This is done today with eyebrows. The rest of the hair were well drawn back to show the elaborate hairstyles of the day. This was a common practice in Europe, while the ladies of the upper class of Italy preferred to cover the hairline with turbans, veils and jewelry. To color the hair used is saffron onion skins!
By the seventeenth century, Queen Elizabeth was the main female icon who led the trends of the time. Her milky white complexion and red braids brought women from around the world to run behind copious amounts of white powder and red wigs. To obtain a pale used white lead, highly poisonous, bright, with the addition of red cheeks, all covered with a thin layer of egg white to tie everything together and was ready to party.
Hairstyles during the Renaissance period are very sumptuous and elaborate, compared to the previous medieval period, where women simply wore their hair loose or tied with ribbons from a braid or a wreath of flowers. Renaissance women love her hair on the front, quite loose and pulled behind falling in curls, filled with ribbons and jewels. Sometimes collected from a retinal sometimes twisted in a manner indescribable. The bride Renaissance has spoiled for choice, may decide with the hairdresser and do all the tests he wants, just imagination and keep in mind that every bride Renaissance-respecting will loose hair (at least behind). In fact at the time those who wore her hair completely and covered by veils or retinas, were married women, while unmarried and brides wore them loose.
