Hairstyle of the Vestal Virgins

Slightly out-of-period, but interesting nonetheless, is an instruction video by hairdresser Janet Stephens re-creating the hairstyle of the Vestal Virgins of ancient Rome. The Seni Crines is the oldest known hairstyle in Rome, and influenced later styles.

In the video, Stephens uses period tools and techniques to re-create the "seven-braid look of the Vestal Virgin priesthood." The 17-minute video includes bibliography.
