Archaeological Institute of America Lecture “On [Hair]Pins and Needles: Roman Hairstyles”

Sunday, Sep 28, 2014
3 p.m. - 4 p.m.

Law Building, Lower Level
1001 Bissonnet Map & Directions

Presented by Janet Stephens, hairdresser and archaeologist.

“There she was, just a-walkin’ down the street”—it’s always been about keeping up appearances, even 2,000 years ago! During this talk and demonstration, discover what an appointment with a hairdresser meant for a Roman woman.

A reception follows the program. Several lucky guests will walk away with a hairstyle modeled on sculptures in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

This event is free with Museum admission! Drop in to participate.
