Papillote Curls: historical hairdressing techniques

Category: Howto & Style
Duration: 00:09:26
Janet Stephens' tutorial on 18th century boucles papillotes (butterfly curls) using triangles of tissue paper and a flat iron. Papillote curls make beautiful, strong curls even on fine limp hair. They are great for retro hairstyles. Research based on the Encyclopedie Diderot.
