Okay, so here’s the deal. Renaissance Faires like to recreate sixteenth century lifestyles. You know, kilts and turkey drumsticks, sword fights and hairstyles.
Yeah, hairstyles. Braiding is an ancient form of hairstyle. Greek and African statues illustrate the intricate levels of braiding, and the style perpetuates itself throughout Elizabethan, Victorian and Modern eras. Since most folks don’t know how to do, say, a five strand French, they pay nimble little fingers to handle the workload for them.
We have been at the Northern Renaissance Faire for over 20 years, during which time we have recreated the styles forgotten by modern crew cuts and spiral perms. We can now be found at The Great Dicken's Fair at the Cow Palace in San Francisdco, various Northern California Renaissance Faires, Scandinavian events and Celtic/Scottish events.
