Many women of the 19th century began crafting their own hairwork in their homes. In America, popular magazines of the period, printed patterns and offered starter kits with the necessary tools for sale. Books of the period, like Mark Cambell’s Self-Instructor in the Art of Hair Work offered full volumes devoted to hairwork and other “fancywork,” as predominately female crafts were known at the time.
