Invisible Hair Nets

When looking at groups of 1860s photographs, we a significant number of women wore some type net net. Most frequently, this was a functional and/or invisible hair net.

These hair nets are an excellent addition to a reenactor’s or interpreter’s hair kit. This simple, correct accessory can greatly improve an impression or just help with a bad hair day. **Please remember these were worn over dressed hair.

Please pardon Clara’s guest appearance at the end.

I welcome you to learn more about hair nets by reading To Net, Or Not to Net, available through my Etsy store.

  1. Thus the quick end to the video.

  2. I’ll have to try one of these. And keep it away from my cat. Basket would eat it — he’s a consumer of thread.

  3. I keep mine in empty Mentos and Eclipse cans. I also have two that I have tatted (lace maker) that are much heavier but serve the purpose to teach the public why nets were worn.
