Hat, Hair and Hair Living History Conference

Living History Conference
Saturday, November 3, 2012
Midland College
Cosmetology Center
3600 N. Garfield, 
Midland, Texas

Frontier Women’s Living History Association is excited to offer this wonderful opportunity to women Living Historians. Conference participants will be treated to a period hair style by the Cosmetology students of Midland College under the supervision of department director, Michael Fields.  Michael is well versed in theatre hair styling and will help his students give us a simple, reproducible  daily hair style  from 18860-1880.   The focus will be helping the participants learn to create a period appropriate hairstyle with their current cut. Hair pieces can be styled and hair nets can be incorporated if brought to the session.  Participants are encouraged to wear  one of the their daily wear dresses  to help set the mood and for another activity that is being planned, a possible photo opportunity in a Victorian setting.
We will also be treated to an exciting show and tell by Stephen Porterfield of Cat’s Meow Antique Shop.  Stephen is an expert in vintage clothing and has a large collection of 1800’s clothing.  He has been an expert appraiser for Antiques Road Show.  He will talk about Hats, Combs and Hat pins from the era giving us information on how to perch those hats on our new hairstyles. 
Conference pre-registration cost of $50 will also include a light lunch and some other activities that are still in the planning stage.
