Regency Hairpiece

My hair does not curl without a lot of work, work which I'm usually unwilling to do. The solution? Fake hair, obviously. I bought two hairpieces: the Boho Double Braid and the Vintage Locks by Forever Young. I cut some of the curls off of the Vintage Locks piece, and sewed them to the double braid, to give a curled bangs effect. Then I sewed a couple wig clips to the braid, so I can keep it from sliding back. The Vintage Locks clip still works, even though I took off some of its curls.



The Accessory: Regency hairpiece
Historical Period: 1790-1810
Outfit It Accessorizes: I am planning on using this with a variety of regency period outfits
Materials Used: Two purchased hairpieces, brown thread, glue, wig clips
Techniques Used: Hand sewing


  1. Lovely! Can't wait to see it in person!

  2. Excellent! Similar for what I do with a braid and a bun. I call it a halo braid. Love the little curls attached.
