So I just finished performing in Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing" as Hero. For the show I had to do my own hair. This is what I came up with.
Our theater set the play in the Regency period. I based the style on period pictures and silhouettes. Sorry the pictures are kinda crappy. How To:
Part hair in the middle. Section off bangs on either side from middle of head to just behind ears.
Divide the rest of the hair into two sections- top and bottom.
Pull top-back section hair into high pony tail. Curl hair.
Make sock bun and pin ends of hair around the bun either loosely or rings around the entire bun.
Make a small braid on both sides of hair using small sections of hair from bottom.
Wrap these braids around the bun.
Curl bottom-back hair. Either repeat sock bun or use piece and pin at random to form a knot of curls.
Curl bangs into ringlets. If hair is long, pin up to desired length.
