Long DescriptionOriginally published in 1899, this rare book contains detailed instructions and illustrations for recreating the elegant and romantic styles of the Victorian era. The book begins with details on how to comb, cut, part and fasten the hair before styling and then illustrates how to create the twist, coil, the "8", gordian knot, grecian knot, apollo knot, marteau bow, raised hand bow, raised bandeaux (Marie Stuart style), raised pompadour (Marie Antoinette Style), raised bandeaux worn in Louis XV style, Virgin Mary bandeau, Empress bandeaux (worn by Empress Eugenie), Cleo bandeau, waved coiffure, water wave curl coiffure, catogan plait coiffure, neck coiffure, curled coiffure, high coiffure, coiffure puff (Louis XV), coiffure with puff and side parting, raised wave coiffure, coiffure of waved bandeau, coiffure with comb, coiffure with crescent ornament, ribbon loop coiffure, coiffure with interlaced ribbon, young lady ball coiffure, opera coiffure, grand soiree coiffure, and wedding coiffure. Techniques begin with easy-to-use twists and pinning, with each progressive style getting a little more difficult and/or combining multiple techniques. Long hair can be worked in the styles, but guidance is also provided for adding hair pieces to create fullness. Items such as frizzettes (hair combs with false hair pieces), switches and wiglets are used. Vintage techniques for creating desired effects with hair -- how to make ringlet curls, waves, waving in hairpins, waving on ivory sticks, waving with an iron (Marcel pattern) and water waving -- as well as adding hair ornaments to the hairstyles (ribbons, combs, feathers, flowers) are illustrated with completed hairstyles providing authentic representations of curls, waves and ornament placement worn in the Victorian era. All styles are described within the text with an illustration of the completed hairstyle showing the end results. Sample hairstyles and illustration images are shown at the top of this page.

This weekend was a long one. We installed a new database server and copied all the data from the old server to the new one.

Then of course, we had to sync all the new data that collected on the old server while we were setting up the new server.

It was a time consuming process but we didn't have even one minute of down time over the weekend. The switch over was seamless.

The old server is becoming our backup server with instant data replication. This way, we no longer need to shut the site down for a couple hours each week to perform data backups. We can also run some of the more processor intense extract processes using the backup server instead of the live main server.

All these changes should mean more up time, faster response time and fewer issues long term.
