Notes
Content: Title from folder.
Content: Printed on border: "The style of coiffure here delineated is designed for full dress. A French twist, terminating in a Grecian plait, carried in a circle around it, forms the back. This lies behind the comb. The twist is continued below by a five-strand cable twist, which also forms a circle around the head, outside and in front of the first plait and comb. The front hair is arranged in French bandeaux, terminating at the ears in an open seven-plait, which is carried in five festoons around the lower portion of the head. Drooping sprays of fuschias and jasmine constitute the floral ornaments." Written on mount: "Feb. 1855"
