H is for Hair (Art Nouveau – #AtoZChallenge)

For those who don’t know me, I have long hair all the way down to my hips. My romance heroines have long hair. That’s appropriate to the time periods I prefer, plus there is a lot more romantic potential in grooming long hair, pinning it up, letting it tumble down, etc.

The jewelers who favored Art Nouveau designs enjoyed working with women’s hair, whether up, down, or something entirely different!

  1. Hair is fantastic, visually. I’m not surprised Art Nouveau took the best advantage from it.
    Great collection!
