So why haven’t I been sewing or blogging much the past six months or so? Because I’ve been working my butt off on the 18th Century Hair & Wig Styling book! I’ve done tons of research and found some things that I think will surprise everyone, and I’ve been making wigs and styling hair up the wazoo. The book is mostly written, and I’ve done about 3/4 of the styles/modeling sessions. What’s next? Finishing up the styles/modeling, finishing up the book, and raising money to get it printed!

Why Should I Pre-Order a Copy?
You can save $5 off the finished price, opt for some nice perks (like a custom wig, or a personalized styling session) — and most importantly, you’ll help make the book as fabulous as it can be. If I reach my funding goal during the month of January, I’ll be able to publish the book I envision — about 250 pages, tons of history and research, and 25 hairstyles, all with quality paper and binding. If I don’t reach my funding goal, I’ll still be printing the book, but I’ll probably have to do one or more of the following: shorten the page count, which means cutting some of the history/research and/or one or more hairstyle; and/or use less quality paper and/or binding.
If I go OVER my funding goal, then I’ll be able to license some really fabulous images of artworks from museums, which will add some really useful info to the book — especially those elusive back views of hair!
