Free Article For Ancient Roman Period Costumers

I just found this free article by Janet Stephens, the hairdresser who has made a name for herself by using her hairdressing knowledge to derive the plausible construction of ancient Roman and Greek hairstyles that have been preserved in period sculpture.* Stephens writes well, and the article, which appeared in Journal of Roman Archaeology,** is well illustrated. Enjoy!

* Stephens continues to operate a hair dressing salon in Baltimore, Maryland. In case you're curious, the website for her salon may be found here

** The full citation of the article is Stephens, Janet. Ancient Roman hairdressing: On (hair)pins and needles, Journal of Roman Archaeology, vol. 21, pp. 110-132 (2008).
