I’m going to do some ancient roman hair today! I’ve done three different roman hairstyles that you could dress up or down, or even wear them every day. The three hairstyles range from easy, medium, or hard difficulty levels – just remember, don’t feel intimidated to try the hard one – practice makes perfect! Ready to get started? Okay, let’s go!
1. Easy – Classic Roman Bun
2. Medium – Roman Braid Combo
3. Hard – Roman Braid Updo
All of these are either based off of sculptures or old sketches – but you can get really creative. As far as accessories, you saw in my tutorials that I used mostly pearls, which were used back then (and it’s what I had on hand) but you can do a million different things. Here are just a few to get you started:
Gold Dust (you can find spray-on gold specifically for hair)
Jewels and Pearls
Fancy hair sticks were used to secure many updos, but for modern convenience, I used hidden bobby pins, then decorated my hair separately.
How many or how much of each of these things you wore seemed to have a great deal to do with where you were going or how wealthy you were. Have fun!
