Italian Renn Hair

Portrait of Giovanna Tornabuoni by Domenico Ghirlandaio, 1488.  I wanted Italian hair to go with my dress, this was the basic inspiration, though I’m still mystified a little at the crimping and style… I used pearl beads in mine, because I felt that way, and my curls were larger and less organized. However, I think the idea was there.
