I do lifestyle and beauty videos as well, ranging from wearable everyday looks, makeup tips and DIY natural beauty treatments, to fashion lookbooks, vegetarian recipes and more extreme Halloween tutorials.

If you enjoy history, you’ve come to the right place as well. I have a few series based on historical makeup and hairstyling that are my little passion projects.

  1. Easy tutorial to follow but not going to lie the finished product was pretty messy. You could see the hair band in the bun and the bun in general was too tight; gibson girls' hair was loose and voluminous all over, not just in the front. It looks kind of weird when around your face is voluminous and the middle of your hair is flat, so I would recommend redoing the bun at the end so it's loose and airy and fits in with the rest of the hair.

  2. This was interesting to watch, as I always wondered how this look was acheieved many of the ladies in my great grandmoither's sisters 1914 wedding photo have this exact look.

  3. Did I mention your musical selections are most righteous indeed! Luv'n that! Have you, or would you, considering doing a "look" of the late, ever lovely 'Lady Diana Princess of Whales'????

  4. Well done Lucy! I have always wondered how they got their hair to be so poofy and yet the bun was so secure. I always thought it was all just drawn up unto a huge bun and that you had to just have a ton of hair.

  5. You can also use hair rats or cut a couple bun things and see together into a oval or circle. You can arrange and tease around your head and place the the rats and then you pull the hair over the rats and then pin into a bun loosely. That's we have at the theatre when we have long enough to work with, either real or with wigs! .

  6. You always make everything seem so simple. I've been wanting to make this hairstyle for costumes but never really got how to make them. Thanks Lucy, the video is great.

  7. Can you do Jenny Lind?
    She was a famous soprano singer during the 1800's and she was Swedish、she was called The Swedish Nightingale and H.C Andersen proposed to her many times and even wrote a story from her .

    (Btw、H.C Andersen was Bi)
