Original Historical Hair Styles


From an original copy of The American News (paper).



Felicity's mane is a mess! Josefina's braid has backfired! Kirsten's loops have drooped. Addy's bun has bombed. Samantha's flip is a flop! And Molly's braids are on leave!! What's your American Girl to do? These step-by-step directions just might save the day!



 Q: Which American Girl might have used hog's fat to smooth her hair?
A: In 1774 hog's fat was commonly used to smooth hair. 
YUCK! Felicity, give it a pass!
