Here is what I have in the Florilegium on period hairstyles.
In the PERSONAL CARE section:
hair-msg (100K) 9/28/11 Period and SCA hairstyling and care.
http://www.florilegium.org/files/PERSONAL/hair-msg.html

hair-dyeing-msg (12K) 9/ 4/01 Period hair bleaching and dyeing.
http://www.florilegium.org/files/PERSONAL/hair-dyeing-msg.html

I particularly like this quote from that file: "I'm much minded of the Will Cuppy essay where he gives Lucrezia Borgia's hair-bleach formula, and finishes up with "If your hair remained on your head,
you were a blonde."

Medieval-Hair-lnks (13K) 5/29/04 Links to medieval hair and headdresses by Dame Aoife Finn of Ynos Mon.
http://www.florilegium.org/files/PERSONAL/Medieval-Hair-lnks.html

If anyone has any articles or research papers on period hairstyles or care, I would love to add them to the Florilegium so that others can find and read them. As always, the author keeps the copyright.

PS: Deirdre, if you are Easily Distracted, maybe you should let someone else know before you go wandering in the Florilegium alone…. :-)
