17 Vintage Portraits of Long Hair Victorian Ladies

Hair was said to be a woman’s crowning glory, The Victorians certainly knew that as these photos will convey. A Victorian girl until the age of 16 wore her hair in braids, once she became a young lady at age 16 her hair went up (while her hem length went down to the ankle.)

Victorian hair was so precious that it was often saved after the loved one passed away and woven into beautiful intricate jewelry, wall hangings and sculptures such as this Victorian hair tree.
