] I just wanted to say, that you shouldn't despair if you have short hair. There are accounts of women with short hair- it was bit of a novelty, and caused much comment, but it did exist. There are also accounts of fake hair, wigs and hairpieces being sold at this time. The book "Hats" by Hilda Amphlett has some details. It's in my library, I'll see if I can get the info this week. (Unfortunately, I still have no access to a scanner, or the ability to create a web-page..)
Is that why they used the actress they did (sorry, can't
remember the name) for Lady Russell in Persuasion? I
remember being surprised by her short hair. And also
Mary Crawford in the BBC Mansfield Park. I feel better
knowing they're not entirely out of period!
