Medieval Hair Taping, Without Elastic! #elasticless (Plus Small Writing Update)

I don’t usually post videos, but this was so fascinating from a historical standpoint and a practical standpoint. I have been trying to figure out a way to avoid hairbands for the sake of my hair, and this looks like a really good (and pretty!) alternative.

(Also, sorry if this just shows up as a link. Not something I can control right now. Soon, though. Soon.)

Just a general update this week. I’ve started the revision of Puck’s Call. And I’m back to writing short stories and flash fiction. In fact, I’m sending one out to a market tonight.

That’s it for now. See you next week!

What about you? What are your thoughts on how women wore their hair without elastics? Also, do you prefer hair up or down (doesn’t have to apply to your own)?
