I'm tossing around the idea of doing a Long Hair Roundtable for an indoor event sometime in the future. Kind of like a cross between a class and social, more like a panel, I want to see if I can't get several people committed to helping me with it, as far as conversation goes. I'm currently thinking of it being open to everyone, with those that have longer hair being of higher authority. It would hopefully be a question and answer session, with people learning about modern hair care, methods for styling and arranging that are good for hair, and tips on how to grow out one's hair.
I hope to do some research on period hair care and products, because I'm thinking hair may have to be my "thing" up here. I'd like to turn that research into an A&S project for future events. And at some point in the future I probably ought to teach a french braiding class, regardless of whether or not it's period. So many people want to know how, and it does look nicer than throwing it into a ponytail at events.
I'm not sure why I keep coming up with ideas for classes and teaching. I'm not a good public speaker and don't really like to be the center of attention, but I want my words to carry some authority, and evidently teaching gives one automatic authority. I've come out of my shell enough to want to be "Someone Important," and now I have to find a way of making myself thus.
I'm finding more people's pictures of Roman busts, and some of them are smart enough to get photos of the backside of the head too. So I'm adding to my list of hairstyles that I can do at events, if only I can find enough Roman women to braid. I've decided to pimp out Roman as often as I can, cause it is so totally more awesome than other periods. Aw yeah.
