The second class is the one that's really holding me up. The Boy and I talked about it on the way back home from the event we attended on Saturday. I knew I wanted the class to be about authentic hairstyles, since French braiding hasn't been documented for most periods. Unfortunately, authentic hairstyles is a very broad subject, and one I'm not as well versed as I would like to be, since my specialty is Roman. The Boy suggested that I do a tutorial on hair sewing, but I was having a hard time envisioning the subject as a full class. I get rather short sighted on things that I do well, and often don't realize that it may not be obvious to everyone how to accomplish some of the things I do. So, talking through the class with Himself, we decided the class should have a brief discussion of the historical plausibility of sewing hairstyles together, followed by a basic tutorial in a hairstyle or two. The Boy suggested my Norse braid loops, since they're simple, many ladies up her wear Norse, and, provided the student has long enough hair, can be accomplished on their own hair.

Those are my thoughts so far on the classes I'll be teaching at Egils. Now to try to figure out what to say in my discussion without gushing enormously over the ancient hairstyle goddess Janet Stephens. Check out her YouTube Channel, it's awesome!
