Ancient Roman hairstyle recreated

This is an amazing video, featuring an hairdressing archeologist. Seriously.

Janet Stephens researched for seven years to bring you the video below, a recreation of the hairstyle of a Vestal Virgin. Stephens didn’t have much to go on, as most depictions of Vestal Virgins showed them wearing various headdresses. However, she managed to recreate the below from two busts showing the hair style.

Anyhoo, if you have seventeen minutes, please watch the below. It’s truly fascinating.
