Recreating Roman Hairstyles

I have been asked to serve as an Ornatrix, or a Roman Hair Dressing Slave, at an upcoming SCA event in September. An Ornatrix was a respected slave responsible for making the Domina fashionable with her hair and makeup.

At the event, I will have a booth setup where ladies may have their hair made into one of five period hairstyles. There will be a small fee to cover supplies only, but this will be a joint A&S and Service display.

Clients may chose from these five hairstyles: RomanHair-Styles. The ones that state “requirements” will include accessories, which clients must provide for themselves.
