*These are comments on the overall plan for both volumes. Individual ATI's will be created for both books at RTM* Based on reviewer feedback of our 2010 publication Wig Making and Styling, which teaches readers how to construct a wig, Historical Wig Styling Volumes 1 & 2 focus on how to style wigs in a historically accurate way. Each styling chapter will contain approximate dates of the period, images of historical hairstyles from the period, a list of important artists or style icons from the period, and notes about relevant historical events. How to create each hairstyle is explained in minute detail, beginning with a discussion on the best cut or style of wig to start with for the style and followed by step-by-step instructions for the hairstyle. Each step is illustrated by photographs, including finished front side and back shots of the hairstyle and pictures of variations on this style. The books also cover necessary supplies and styling products needed, notes about proper wig handling, an brief overview of basic styling techniques, guidelines for good wig styling, and a discussion about the differences in styling a person's own hair instead of a wig. Also based on reviewer feedback, we have split the book into two volumes in order to include the most detailed explanation of how to create the styles while including numerous photographs to visually depict each step. The first volume covers styles from Ancient Egypt through 1820; the second volume covers styles from 1830 to the present. Among others, styles covered include: Ancient Egyption Ancient Greek Ancient Roman Renaissance Elizabethan Cavalier Biedermeier Romantic/Victorian These books will be included in the new Costume Topics Series from the Theater list.
