2. Feather and Hair embellishments
Eloise brushing through the feathers for hair embellishment is one unforgettable sequence in the series. Feathers are considered as something inexorable for Victorian women when it comes to hairstyles.
When hoping to catch the eye of potential suitors on the promenade, lustrous embellishments are always a welcome companion. Consider Daphne, who often chose to slide an extra barrette in when spending the evening on the duke’s arm. However, her younger sister Eloise is always a constant rebel against pin-ups by wearing hers left loose around the shoulders, but she usually anchored her mane in place with her signature three-tiered hairbands. On the other hand the Featherington women have a penchant for maximalism which is best reflected in their heavily-tonged hairdos, particularly Penelope Featherington.
3. Tonged Hairstyles are always advisable
Almost all the women folk including Lady Bridgerton from the Bridgeton family follow this pattern of hairstyles. When others prefer curling tongs, Daphne always goes for tonged hairstyle. This might be yet another reason that she got the golden opportunity to grab the attentions of the roguish duke.
