18th Century hairstyle tutorials

To continue my choice of wig vs styling for this era, I started looking for styling tutorials. 

I found two really good ones for using your own hair. The American Duchess does a very nice one complete with lots of pictures and drawn diagrams.

Example of one of her great drawn diagrams!

The second one from my moving finger writes, is more 1700s "inspired" but who would really notice under a hat and this has a nice video . . .

Then I found this site, the article is step by step directions on how to build your own wig using frames and fake hair. Though this is probably the hard and more complex way to go, it really tickles my fancy and I want to try it :)

She also makes custom wigs on commission for a decent price.
