An Edwardian Hairstyle: Four-Part Video Tutorial
Here is a fascinating, four-part video tutorial on creating a very pretty Edwardian hairstyle. It's not a Gibson-girl pompadour, but more complex, more sculpted, as video author Wildilocks explains. Ms. Wildilocks is a professional hairstylist, and the style she creates is not for the faint of heart, and could not be done by onesself.

Nevertheless, for those of us sans friends or family who can style our hair, there are still techniques that we can learn.
In which we learn how to part the hair, start the several ponytails that form the bases of the hairstyle, and start creating rolls and puffs.
In which we focus first on the top rolls and puffs, and then on the back hair, teasing the ponytail there to create puffs.
In which we create a roll on the side.
The completed hairstyle. Lots of puffs, rolls and sculpting, especially on the back and sides.
