Title

Portrait of unidentified type of Beehive hairstyle

Description

Black and white image of a young woman with light blonde hair. Her hair is swept up into a type of beehive hair style, leaving a flip curl along her right side from the cheek to the top of her hair. She wears a light colored sleeveless shirt and appears to be wearing eyeliner and false eyelashes. Museum records do not identify the woman, but this image was part of the Herbert E. McMullen bequest, and appeared to be one of several intended to document hairstyles of the day. McMullen was a local photographer who also collected other images of daily life in the area.
