FLEUR DE STYLE

After Kathie Rothkop of Trico Salon in Petaluma, California, researched one of the early eras of hairdressing (circa Louis XVI and his mistress, Madame de Pompadour), she was inspired to recreate fantasy versions of some of the fabulous "do's" of the French Court.

  Here, her "Flower Tower," along with some of the trivia she learned:

Wig makers were already prominent, but it wasn't until women of the French Court started hiring artists to adorn their hair with ornamentation that paid, "professional" hairdressing flourished.

In 1767, more than 1,200 hairdressers were reported working in Paris; a few years earlier, none.

It was common for these professional hairdos to reach four feet in height, which caused severe backaches and awkward travel to parties (in covered carriages).

With no firm-hold gels or hair sprays available, hairdressers concocted their own "all natural" pomades to keep their work in place.

One recipe: "Take some beef marrow and remove all bits of skin and bone. Put it in a pot with some hazelnut oil and stir well. Add a little essence of lemon. Bear grease can be substituted for bone marrow."
