Title: Plucked, Shaved & Braided: Medieval and Renaissance Beauty and Grooming Practices 1000-1600


Book Description

With more than 100 historical bath, beauty, and cosmetic recipes, this hilarious romp through the medieval and Renaissance fashion world describes beauty practices that seem grotesque today: plucking eyebrows and eyelashes out, shaving foreheads, and dying hair blue. This collection of useful recipes and bizarre beauty practices offers a practical yet humorous look at the daily life of men and women of all classes in medieval and Renaissance Europe. From step-by-step instructions for period headdresses and hairstyles to odd grooming and hygiene practices, the intimate details of this resource bring the people of these periods to life.
