...

Oh hello, everyone. Stacy. Happy you about

...

see that. I am And this is the bu historian where we're

...

gonna talk about our history over drinks.

...

So those of you who aren't aware today is Best day, which is

...

France independence Day as an American,

...

they helped us out with our revolution So it seems kind of

...

like, I need to give them a little something as well too.

...

that means that it's always good seems to talk about French

...

excuse french fashion, which who doesn't love that. Right?

...

No.

...

That said, today, we're gonna talk about versailles powerhouse women and their hair.

...

look

...

it's gonna be weird. It's just ...it's gonna be weird It's gonna be impromptu. It just

...

we're in for a wild ride.

...

And so, basically, I can talk about all the women

...

who lived at first high and

...

you can't talk about all the power women who have far high. And so

...

basically, I am going to be talking about

...

three women in particular who I think are just really interesting and

...

fascinating people to discuss.

...

And these three women use their brain's bodies and hair

...

to capture and rule for size, which is wild, and we just

...

we need to discuss this. This is something fun.

...

Now disclaimer, some of this has already been

...

talked out, specifically Will Bash, who writes

...

this amazing book wrote it each ago called Maria head, the royal hairdresser

...

the queen and the revolution. If anyone is interested

...

highly recommend it. It's a fantastic race resource and a really fun read as well.

...

there a few dry parts, I will get you before warning, but overall, it's a really like

...

I just ...I couldn't put it down. I was

...

so obsessed. And no, I am not getting promoted.

...

to read to say this book. It is that good, guys.

...

No. That being said, I also wanna discuss some important terms

...

that we're gonna discuss today because I I think it's unfair of me

...

just throw you all into the b band, like, that's that's just not gonna be fun.

...

Right. And so the first I wanna talk about is the mid on

...

which is the formal tighter title given to the kings chief

...

mistress. This title specifically originates from Henry V

...

force approximately around the fifteen seventies. He started

...

using it for his mistress, and this ends with

...

louis the for fifteen I should say.

...

in seventeen forty four. So it does title has been around for quite some time.

...

and it's quite popular across Europe. They'll we see a lot of monarch using that.

...

especially when the kings wanna to the little five piece, but they also wanted to give them the benefits.

...

of being able to

...

has it either land or they wanted

...

their children the bastard children of the king has

...

in basically getting money and

...

also titles as well, which it's

...

so fascinating that I could do an entire session on At one point guys is wild.

...

So that's just wanna talk about that. Fun fact about this

...

title actually, if Henry viii offered this title to end the

...

but she refused it.

...

she basically wanted to be his wife slash queen or nothing at all.

...

It's just

...

Absolutely.. And and always reaching for the stars.

...

But the next thing I wanna know is well too is shot. It's

...

else. So it's the palace. We in English referred to it as the palace of her versailles,

...

It's for the law formal title is the shut versailles.

...

No. Many of us

...

know it as to the French monarchy and as an op

...

palace. But it actually turned it out as a haunting lodge.

...

And what is i hunting much? I don't mean, like, a log cabin

...

kinda log launch. I mean,

...

it was used like royalty. So it was quite well built.

...

and furnished, like, a really lovely for machines.

...

And basically, the we the fourteenth teams wanted to get away from Paris.

...

and the Opal, which is what we know I still live see today.

...

and the louvre acted still as sort of this government building.

...

but the court and, like,

...

cord moved out to versailles.

...

and it became sort of the lesser prince but

...

Now the principal residence of the king

...

royal family members.

...

So that inside quick note courtyard

...

who are these people? Why were they, like, hanging out with the king?

...

what's going on? These people are really important because they also are, like,

...

very much kind of

...

they're the cheerleader if you will of the king. And so there

...

people who are French nobles, aristocrats and government officials

...

sometimes they're all of the above usually

...

they're all of the above, and we wonder why the french revolution happened. You know,

...

you're mixing money with politics.

...

I won't actually deep that. But

...

people became court years only when the king allowed them to come to court.

...

you could the, but also not be allowed that court kinda thing. A

...

management as punishment. But so

...

it's also good to note that not just anybody can show up and claim to the accordion

...

of the French court. They have to be invited explicitly by the king himself.

...

and they have to have noble titles. They cannot just be anybody

...

which I think is

...

gonna be important as we talk

...

later on about this.

...

It's

...

basically, it's it's wild. It it's

...

absolutely wild abnormalities. But

...

Let's get into some feminine spheres really quick because we'll also be touching on those

...

and that being the really important twilight.

...

So there are two types of toilets that you will hear his

...

historians discuss. There is the morning toilet.

...

and then the evening toilet

...

the difference between and guys, I am saying Toilet, like,

...

toilet.

...

like,

...

literally really just a friendship pronunciation not that. Thank you job.

...

It's just it's it's not as weird as it is. It's

...

supposed to be this whole room, and it's sort of, like, as you're getting ready, it's this

...

procession of people

...

And in the morning, you receive guests as you get ready

...

your day other court heroes will come to visit you ask you for

...

favors or hold conferences with you. Basically, it's a great time to have me.

...

it's their version of scrolling through their emails and catching up on what's going on.

...

but it is really, really important to note that men are never allowed in

...

either of these. This was women's only sphere, Like,

...

only girls out, which is

...

like,

...

very wild, and we will talk on this later.

...

But during the evening toilet,

...

you could also

...

like you were left alone. No one came and interrupted to you. No one was calling on you.

...

so it was a very private affair. And so this is actually where we start seeing a lot of, like,

...

mistress and things like that happening because no one else is around to, like, pat on you.

...

if you will. So you can have whoever you want hanging out with you while you get ready for your evening

...

sense. So, yeah, just keep that in mind those little fun packs

...

as we're going through this all,

...

know it's a bit to unpack, but

...

it will make sense. I promise guys.

...

So let's get to the good bet.

...

The first three women who I want to discuss is,

...

which is one of my favorites. I'm going to try

...

a different type of format with you guys today. So bear with me.

...

alright. And for those of you who don't know, I don't know web designer

...

as well isn't our historian.

...

And so I tried this new format with my website to see if

...

it would make it a lot easier to show you all the images

...

it's not cool for seeing the images image of

...

big. You may have to zoom in on your screen.

...

since there's no way to enlarge the images image I literally did this, like,

...

ten minutes before I popped on here. So bear with me, I will be ironing out

...

details for the divine portion of it.

...

And if you have any questions, you're always welcome to find me on in

...

instagram. My handle is the curious art historian.

...

and you can do me for any of the images as well too, and I'm happy to send those along.

...

But getting back to Who is one of my absolute favorites

...

she was just an incredible woman and an absolute force to be reckon with.

...

Her real name is John Antoinette pla, which is

...

Yes. If everyone anyone is familiar of French, it

...

platform is the French word for fish, which I think it's hysterical.

...

No what does she changed her name.

...

So she actually comes from a nobility background, but Mary's is app.

...

when I think no nobility, I mean, she still was running and predominant

...

circles in French society. Like, she knew the right people and married

...

very well for herself.

...

she actually is really well known because she held these

...

beautiful and famous salons were

...

all of the, like,

...

really important enlightenment figures.

...

matt.

...

by famous figures and important people, I need, like, full, genre Shocks true ourselves, like,

...

those guys were showing up in our house, to discuss it and like

...

so, obviously, she's a very predominant figure.

...

in a paris of society.

...

And it's she just

...

basically was knocking people over before She even got into versailles.

...

But one my favorite parts is how she came to court,

...

This point, she married to the

...

And they pump who is

...

out there, and he's great.

...

And the what happens is is

...

she is running around paris and she finds out that King Louis the fifteenth,

...

had heard of her beauty and her clever, and he was interested in her.

...

And so as soon as she hears those news, she immediately gets her friends you're just like, Alright, guys.

...

power are we gonna catch the attention? And so which he ties is she coordinates a multi

...

outfit change, like, disruption.

...

of the King's hunt. And so ...the King's hunt is invite only

...

is very of vip. You don't want any strangers around the king.

...

well, you're hunting like,

...

basically, you've got guns and you've got spears. You've got knives. So it's

...

or wild.

...

And so it's just

...

absolutely.

...

...yeah. So not just anybody you can do. So this woman shows up in differing

...

dresses. She had outfit changes and bright colors, and she's like,

...

literally writing in front of the king and disrupting his he and his ride

...

and so course,

...

he sees her. He ...like, how does he not see her? He's not blind.

...

And so he's sees her these extravagant outfits, and you just badly

...

He's just like, who is this woman. I need to know her.

...

And so he invites her to court her in her husband, and the basically has been kind of falls off

...

facial planet as per usual with all of our mistress. Right? So

...

and she sits around and court and kind of like plays her cards. Right?

...

and once she the official the matrix

...

at the time, Marie and, she passes the away

...

that's when we have door come in and snap up the tight

...

immediately, like, no time is last. And she means

...

chief mistress to louis the fifteenth for just under ten years, and she

...

arrived. This woman was living her best life at.

...

And, honestly, she did a lot. Like, I mean,

...

she wasn't just living her best i she was hoping other people live their vast lives.

...

she did a lot for the government. She acted as The fifteenth

...

prime minister. She was so powerful

...

in

...

the government that basically foreign diplomats would come to her asking for her help with political issues.

...

specifically with things with either French court or

...

French politics they would come to her before they even went to the king.

...

to ask for her help, which is wild. I mean, for a woman to hold that kind of

...

power at that time. It's just

...

absolutely mind boggling guys, like, only queens

...

were able to do things like that negotiate this kind of power, and so for her,

...

to step into this very royal role without

...

being and sort of like

...

anybody, if you will, is absolutely

...

like, unprecedented it. It's so cool.

...

But more importantly to us, she's the one who puts pairs on the map as a cultural

...

epicenter. She really pushes French pride in French made.

...

what she does this by purchasing the seth porcelain i

...

tree, which would then go into rival, the German and English Porcelain being produced or

...

this time period.

...

you can actually, if you're on my website, you can go into some of my many lessons after

...

words, and you can see some of the porcelain that's being produced around this time period. It's

...

absolutely wild. And we've see a portrait of

...

doctor here in the very. It's the

...

first thing image you see on the top left. I'm gonna be going sort of, like,

...

left to right top to bottom,

...

And if you have any questions about the credits, there are some

...

at the bottom as well as further links.

...

as well too.

...

But getting back to the point, she is

...

absolutely brilliant again, for the arts in France.

...

she invited all of these great artists to be court painters,

...

one worth noting is the Francois

...

who does quite a bit actually of painting up her the next two that you see

...

next to the gold frame painting, those two are bi

...

he's very famous.

...

for these beautiful french cocoa pieces.

...

that we see in a lot of collections, my London people, if you can go to the walls

...

you will see a ton there. My New York people

...

If you come to the free collection, they have a ton there as well.

...

really beautiful piece. So was very soft very front.

...

But that being said, she also was an amateurs print in his

...

everything else I've just told you wasn't enough. She also was a print maker, like she

...

dabble in arts herself, which is so cool.

...

and she was incredibly smart

...

when it came to being a mistress because when one is a mistress, the queen is solo alive, the queen's

...

still is there. And so you have these awkward run and she was so smart.

...

and she basically gave the utmost respect

...

to the King's wife Queen Marie scott, because I'm probably just at

...

hospital forgive

...

my lack of polish pronunciation.

...

And

...

Queen marie just absolutely ignored.

...

I'm to put the door for this because she was actually getting the respects he deserved, but

...

she also didn't have to, like, deal with the king game like horn it's all get

...

and just like, alright Cool. You do you. I'm gonna, like,

...

keep taking hear of myself, which is great. Usually a win win for everyone.

...

who is Had a of health

...

problems that led her to step down from chief mistress in seventeen fifty one.

...

so just nine years after becoming the chief mistress.

...

Said, this is

...

did not stop her from being an integral part of the French government in court life side.

...

she just stopped being his the King's romantic partner, if you will. She's still was

...

Absolutely. Like, he came to her for all kinds of advice.

...

throughout her entire life and his life.

...

So

...

that inside for

...

the, she brings in all this art

...

all of these cool things, and she sports one of my favorite hairstyles, which is the

...

the technical, which is the French for sc head.

...

which you can actually see quite well

...

in that third image of her.

...

which is wearing this beautiful

...

blue dress with all these swirl patterns on it and just got a book in her hands.

...

which also, I love the painting of her by French. It is

...

absolutely stunning, and I think it really shows off how

...

Well, verse, she was. She we have a globe. We have in these

...

vlogs. So she's well glad as well educated and she

...

sitting had this very or neatly carved desk with her very fashionable

...

and are very fashionable here. Who would I love? I just ...I think it's great.

...

But so that being said to explain to Ted Home, which is

...

basically, it's the shaved head. Like I said, So what they're doing is they're trying to make it look like the women's

...

head is

...

cheap wool. So they basically curl the hair from the base of the neck

...

all the way up to the top, and then the top sort of smoothed over.

...

to give that little poo of extra p, if you will.

...

And so it's

...

was just absolutely wild, and this was a very predominant hairstyle.

...

basically, up until Maria when not became clean.

...

It's it's pretty cool. We also see down

...

at the bottom there

...

below these three paintings, we have Antoinette in a silver dress

...

also sporting the.

...

which I'll talk about. Eventually, I'm will get there, guys. I promise

...

But that had it was

...

just one of those things that she was absolutely faction forward as she was

...

everything she brain's broad beauty. Fun fact is all too,

...

the term Pom Pom is actually derived from her name.

...

So when I say pom Pom though, I don't mean, like, the cute little fluffy things that we use in arts and crafts as a

...

kids. I mean, like, pump pumps can be just anything sort of or little, like,

...

decorations. One could put on clothing hair,

...

shoes, etcetera. So that's

...

fun fact. That's where the name Pom pom comes from.

...

So that being inside it, she an absolute legend, unfortunately, contracts

...

Tv and dies in seventeen sixty four.

...

and soon after she passes met I'm too,

...

took over as chief mistress.

...

which leave me

...

to my second woman or Versa i jean Be,

...

or Better known as the compass Battery or Madam.

...

Now,

...

Was Louis the fifteenth chief mistress.

...

from seventeen sixty nine, which is

...

in fact, five years after the death and an up to Papa if anyone's

...

taking notes and doing the math in their head.

...

which at that time, is snap a hub

...

I don't know I'd explain that too guys other than that was really quick turnaround for the passing of someone.

...

and then having, like,

...

and

...

next to

...

main not mistress, if you will.

...

And she was his mistress and told his death until the king packed

...

in seventeen seventy four.

...

No. But is very much

...

seen in historical contacts is the body

...

if you will. But I really think That's unfair. Like, she really wasn't a great person but she

...

that bad. She kinda just everyone loved to, like, take a his is that

...

she was just she was everything that the French society was not into.

...

she's very anthropologist.

...

to put politely.

...

No, which is what I like to point out that Sean Before she becomes

...

the madame Is

...

she's not a french ability at all.

...

she's not even, like, a

...

mister society. She's really low class. Like, I'm mean, not coming from

...

like, guys, she was a cortisol.

...

at one point in paris.

...

And so she's basically a cortisol, and she's discovered by the cool

...

who gives her his name when she starts working for him.

...

No was only a predominant restaurant.

...

he would know

...

he was not

...

only a predominant ari at the French court.

...

but, also, you was pretty much a pen why came was

...

I don't wanna, like mental words here. He was actually, like,

...

bringing in all these into versailles for all these wild parties.

...

but which is great for Jean Beck, aka,

...

because this is how she becomes a what painted.

...

to the upper echelon lines of society and in her work, and it makes her she's

...

stream successful. And what

...

rise very quickly within this because of how beautiful she is.

...

like, she is so beautiful everyone in court is talking about her.

...

of course, at this point, now, King Louis the fifteenth is intrigued.

...

he's like, beautiful lady on my court. Absolutely. You kinda check

...

this out.

...

So he ranges a meeting between himself and Jean Through Directly, and he's

...

absolutely, like, just explored by her beauty. He's like,

...

I need. I need this. It's so home is though.

...

like I mentioned, long who is nowhere near Noel

...

So she can't be formally invited to court because Like I talked about guys,

...

you gotta be noble to be invited to court.

...

So let the fifteenth continues. Basically, come

...

Brother to marry her, The other bucky

...

so he can informally invite to court.

...

plot twist. Though, guys. So on the French court because in people three and his brother,

...

aren't actually of nobility. The family

...

forged their own documents of nobility, which is something you do see once in a while

...

in history. And I also wanna note that it's in a very

...

beloved movie to my heart on nice tail,

...

he fletcher does this, and it is it's actually something we see happen in history

...

frequently in certain chords.

...

But as per usual,

...

i digress. So now everyone has their fake titles on the ability that could be

...

president court and Sean Becomes officially

...

And the makeup.

...

Now because she's at the lower classes,

...

everyone at court knows that everyone knows her origin story. Everybody knows she was a chord design.

...

And so there she's not very old much because of it. Like, these are trump some sub people.

...

and she's just

...

constantly, they're looking down their noses at her, and she also isn't helping herself

...

by racking up a ton of diet on including food,

...

other luxury luxurious items

...

it it's wild. But the reason I do mention her in today's session is because she

...

big heart. Like, I mean, she just not literally but, like, historically

...

I was gonna tell people in a joking way. I equated the Kim Karashian going to the white

...

house to put on a behalf of those who couldn't reach the appropriate people on power.

...

Did the exact same thing. She constantly was going to

...

fifteen and fifteen

...

convincing them to either lessen people sentences or pardon people entirely.

...

So she definitely has his ear on these things.

...

which I think is very, very powerful. And, again, people's lower classes couldn't

...

knew they could come to her. I met plead for help, in which I think is

...

so powerful and so important to talk about. And i think there's the whole

...

part of the reason why she's not very old liked

...

either. She's helping the underdog if you will.

...

in a place that full of people who are not

...

under dogs. They are living their vessel lives. So

...

But that being dark to the dutch. My was notorious for

...

advocates spending

...

on things like the latest fashion trans, jewelry make,

...

we see this really beautiful portrait of her. It's the fourth pin

...

painting we see in the series.

...

and it's

...

she's got these roses in her hair. She's holding roses in her hands, which she's got

...

a very fly. Look on her face. She's also sporting the te home and which

...

the

...

the modeling sheets.

...

here do. So i say it.

...

does she do. And so

...

And so, yeah,

...

it's really wild as she's basically just

...

all about this disrespectful consumption. And, again, guys, this is not

...

doing her.

...

any favors. She wants to ladies in the greatest, which is great, but she's not actually

...

producing things like Madame Papa was Doing.

...

but I like to call test sneakers. If you were she is not a test maker. She's not

...

creating new things, and then people are following it. She's following other people.

...

But I also wanna note because of this extravagant spending

...

she actually gets

...

in a way messed up in the affair of the diamond

...

which of we scroll all the way down to the bottom of the link? I've put that in there for you guys.

...

you can read a little bit more on it. It's

...

really fascinating and a really interesting,, part of history that

...

Mean, people talked about, but we don't talk enough about.

...

with the show on. I'm like, can we have a lovely reboot of this? Like, can we ...can we make

...

this series.

...

Fireside. If you know anybody out there who's willing to

...

me pitch them that idea. Who you put me in contact with that. Please is.

...

anyway,

...

long story short. This heist is

...

just basically a

...

it brings down when that

...

is some poor Courtyard to believe that he was buying this extravagant necklace.

...

for her from As a gift.

...

when in fact, it was just some other court who kept all the money and, like, ran off to England,

...

on

...

And like I said, the reason done to Bucky is

...

involved in all this is because louis the fifteen times of this

...

specific necklace commissioned for her for you walking

...

two million leaf, which is approximately fifteen point one million

...

Us dollars in two days,

...

money.

...

guys. That's a lot.

...

that's a lot of money for this time in that close. I mean, it's St and don't get me wrong.

...

what you see in the link article is actually

...

And you prep that they been recreated for it, which is

...

wild. Unfortunately, Louis fifty died before was completed

...

it could be given to her. So those poor jeweler, they were kind of

...

to out a luck if you will have pardon

...

part in the name,

...

they just ...they were ...they had no my no money in which

...

they've now commission this beautiful necklace. So that's how the scam kind of came to be.

...

Now

...

you may wondering how this is woman such of our house. What about her hair?

...

to it into all this.

...

and that's what we just wanna say again,

...

guy who wasn't, like, she didn't fit into it, which is wild. She wasn't it.

...

as much as a taste maker, but she just

...

she just was at started

...

influential woman At where, everyone loved to have her, that I felt it was

...

kind of like I would be remiss not to mention her.

...

and she ...I mean, she was like I said, she was extremely powerful and

...

it was ...it was great actually in perfect timing for Maria hat.

...

Because when Antoinette when comes in, she's also kind of like,

...

with if you will a French court, but she's not as dad as. And so

...

that's definitely a step up for Marina, which is cool free.

...

at which leads me to my third and final woman,

...

who I'd like to discuss is queen Marie and twenty.

...

As we all know, Antoinette born Maria, I'm Antonio was

...

Australian Australian on my god, guys.

...

she's austria, and she is the daughter of the powerful empress three.

...

of the Empire

...

No. What's really tragic about Marie antoinette am My have opinion in was her walk

...

of preparedness for the life she lived. She was one of Emperor's Theresa says

...

youngest children. So she wasn't very well educated since everyone kind of

...

expected her to marry some wealthy restaurant like out

...

in the boo, if you will, like,

...

This is the point that like most royal family men

...

or people who marrying into monarch, they speak multiple fluent languages.

...

we do this time and time again.

...

But Wanted didn't even speak fluent in french. She's spoke pretty, like

...

basic French, which is to give you some kind of idea Of like, where she was.

...

on education wise. She also just

...

didn't care or she was too cool for school.

...

if you will, Which did not

...

and well,

...

for her or the French monarchy. But it

...

that inside. The reason she means is because

...

Maria, basically, in Teresa and King louis the fifteenth burger of His

...

after the seven years war,

...

as part of the treaty, they negotiate the marriage of

...

the future King Louis the sixties and Maria antoinette.

...

Side now. If you listen to my last

...

like section on marriages. And like weddings,

...

This is actually really fun because this is a part that I didn't talk about. It

...

a lot of times, in monarch, we have, especially we have these

...

sort of power marriages, which are arranged by, like,

...

current kings and queens for future kings and queens on their children.

...

and i don't need to create these alliances in which then the countries will stop worrying with you other

...

it helps solidify these

...

basically these packs, which is really, really important

...

another being that

...

marriage by proxy, which is where you have another

...

senior your family Royal member, stand in for the person who's missing

...

you will so for rant, when that ...she would have had an uncle or

...

a quarter year who stood in on behalf of

...

in the future king Louis the sixteenth and him vice versa.

...

it it's wild. And and people totally thought that was, like, a legal way to go about that.

...

is crazy. But so that being said, they're very.

...

see. And Ranch when actually shows up in seventeen seventy, like, a year later to the French court.

...

and she's absolutely detached. Like, people lose

...

her. She is a literal embodiment of to vanity.

...

And for a lot of the french career, the seven years war is still really really refreshing their mind.

...

and now they have to see this like, Austria princess like floating about in their course.

...

So it's kinda like, yeah. I I get why you guys don't like her and

...

that Was not super popular.

...

But again, she was not as this like this my i'm.

...

who was constantly trying to gain approval from Branch when and kinda of like help

...

her come out from the gutter if you will.

...

No. No your that may not have been the brightest.

...

fold, but she was clever enough to know that fashion is where she could

...

giant and really cool power over the French court years.

...

And this is fairly obvious in her betrayal portrait, which I talked about earlier

...

It's a portrait of the woman with detective, and she's got this little color

...

they'll choke if you will

...

And then the beautiful silver dress with the blue and like gray and embroidery

...

Just absolutely something. So that's her marriage portrait. I that she's ...will be truthful portrait

...

she sent to Louis the sixteenth.

...

and we see in the next painting,

...

next to it, these two gentlemen and her in a blue dress were

...

who's now sort of like starting to play with hairstyles, which will be us

...

to her work with rose and Leonard.

...

both of who I put more information there what could wikipedia links down at the bottom of this page.

...

as so if you wanna learn more about them, I do recommend it

...

have a look at their Wikipedia of agent. And very, very cool.

...

And so basically, she starts working with them and we start seeing these hairstyles.

...

aka the poof.

...

what's really, really important is to vaglio this to

...

happened and have Leonard come in and do her hair every morning.

...

she had to change the rules because if anyone

...

remembers

...

toilets are not for men.

...

no boys allowed. So she changes her morning twilight into a

...

Live, which is a far more, like, informal intimate version of the toilet.

...

which, of course, pissed off a bunch of people who use

...

who wanted to, like gain favor with Antoinette and establish them and

...

self sort of in the French court hierarchy. So they couldn't do that anymore. It was a

...

Bid only, if you will.

...

And so she does this, and he comes and he does

...

hair. And this is where we start seeing these really cool giant

...

poof.

...

And Leonard as well gets a giant boast add he becomes one of the most

...

sought after hair hairdresser in France.

...

to the point he, actually two of his brothers come to court to help them out.

...

which the very confusing called themselves Leonard as well too.

...

so his historians are constantly, like, trying to stuff out, like,

...

which brother it was who is doing who's hair? It it's

...

crazy.

...

Again, I really recommend reading the book guys Marie when I had it's

...

he goes into offer goes into a ton of about this, and it's

...

super fascinating.

...

by again,

...

what's important to discussion is that he works with Maria Antoinette to revive also the

...

french magazine there's that sounds, which is sort of, like their version of folk.

...

And, of course, in this magazine, they promote Maria antoinette hairstyles

...

and leonard services.

...

No.

...

What are the same hairstyles we're talking about lip the proof it

...

great guys. This is ...you can see all the images we've got going on down here. I've got

...

three for you.

...

with giant, like,

...

we brought the thank god so many feathers guys. So many feathers.

...

We've even got the famous naval trip.

...

And so what's really interesting

...

is basically, the ship is real.

...

I don't know how to explain to see without everyone think can crazy. It's like, no. No. No. It wasn't

...

wasn't like our ship ...if it was a miniature. Right? Like with the small ship,

...

but she did to put it in her hair to celebrate the French naval victory.

...

by belle. And so it was a real thing. It did really happen. It was

...

wild. I don't know if they're a little mechanical humans.

...

like shooting me things out of her hair, that would be wild.

...

if they did ...I would completely wanted something

...

I really wanna to know.

...

I didn't need to speak with people on Versa eye and see what.

...

they have to say about that.

...

So that means said, I also wanna note and take, like, a quick pause to talk about that.

...

the hair dues and these hairstyles the poof.

...

is a great way for women to be creative and express themselves in ways that they weren't allowed to other

...

revise. This is very much still a man's world. And these ladies were simply expected to look pretty have

...

you written the household, etcetera.

...

And basically, this women could

...

do it as a way to entertain themselves to express who they were, their personalities,

...

it was a really great outlet for women, and I think that

...

needs to be stated, but that's why we start having these crazy hairstyles

...

it's women expressing themselves in a very applicable way.

...

Now Debbie says, how do we build these poop?

...

how does this happen? Right? How do we get here?

...

And so poof basically works with the woman's existing hair.

...

and it's kind of given this huge volume through a wire based or, like, a

...

ocean knee material that would be stuffed into, like, onto their head.

...

and then their, like, regular hair being intertwined into it, and then we've, like, put a whole of of fake here.

...

in it to help cover the base.

...

Now, of course, you're gonna be able to know all the difference between fake and real hair.

...

so what they would do is they would then use white or gray powder.

...

And later on, they actually use things like pink powder and they color it and stuff, which is

...

wild. I don't run on

...

to know what chemicals went into making that happen.

...

what it happened. And so they put this

...

powder into the hair to give it this unifying look.

...

and then women we could add in whatever sort of, like, pump pom they wanted,

...

someone went so far I so we're little burns in their hair

...

when morning the decimal loved one, it got real com sometimes guys. It was

...

wild.

...

But that being said,

...

for everyone other than, like, the super Or Maria, the hair would last

...

about one to two weeks, which is super gross, like,

...

if anyone has not watched their hair for, like, a week or two weeks, even know what I mean,

...

a lot of oils build up plus, you've got your little like, treatments in your hair. It

...

this is basically where we get the term rat nest from actually,

...

it's from this

...

wash hair poof creation. So next time someone asks you, like,

...

oh your hair bad. We like, no. No. No.

...

definitely don't have crap in it. Definitely watched this last couple of weeks.

...

I also wanna know that these hair news were super dangerous for the wear.

...

like, women were ...like, recorded being caught on fire for staying inclusive

...

when there were two months of candles or open flames in general, as well as getting

...

caught and various hanging things or a different stuff that sticks out of

...

like mirrors and such, which is wild that these one

...

an as ruler willing to West risk

...

live and limb for their hair.

...

time

...

And just ...yeah. It's just a wild time to be

...

be a alive guys. So basically, Maria twenty now

...

gotten everyone addicted to doing their hair in these extravagant ways.

...

and she's the main case.

...

everyone looking to her for the if styles, trends and

...

boy does she has them wrapped around her little finger.

...

everything she does

...

everyone immediately wants it. Like, they she goes to an evening event with

...

One of the fort hairstyles we see in the little, like, collage there

...

next day, everyone is literally banging you dollar Store.

...

and being like, I want that. Please give me that.

...

let me ...let my hair looks like that. It's

...

wild.

...

But what's really kinda of wild is then the pendulum is swings. Right? It swings into

...

long phone style.

...

which we see in the last two images here.

...

The second to last is

...

the Portrait of Maria antoinette liberal, who's one of my favorite artists effort.

...

and we see the hairstyle there. It's very, like, loose. If there isn't any

...

your hair put into it. It's very natural style if you will.

...

and it goes into this sort of, like,

...

making yourself ...yourself look like you're out in the countryside.

...

very, like loose clothing, not they're constructed, not very alkaline.

...

that being inside still super wealthy fabrics that they were using very expensive.

...

but they were trying to make themselves look like country functions without being country functions.

...

that's the general static.

...

And so the reason actually one for this book was because her hair was so fried, and it was like

...

also starting far of that phone out because

...

that's what happens when you get older, Your hair starts of all.

...

So Leonard said, okay. What's. Well try something that's easier to hide these issues.

...

and that's how we got below style. And, of course, it's a smash hit.

...

because everyone basically can achieve this. It's much more achievable. You don't have to put

...

wireframe and scaffolding into your hair.

...

you can just kind of tease it out and give it this nice volume, like,

...

slowly luck.

...

so everyone was very into that.

...

that be inside with

...

always these heard

...

dues and, like, the one odd mission of court, basically, the ultra

...

continuous consumption, if you will,

...

this is not helping any sort of, like, the economic issues that we're seeing in every day.

...

like,

...

France. Like, these people are literally

...

starving. And here, we have antoinette with a giant trip on our head, Like,

...

honestly, it's

...

why wouldn't we have a french revolution guys? Of course,

...

This is me, Like,

...

going over all the other really cool facts and, like, things that happened during the time

...

that were just

...

also led into the French revolution.

...

So I just ...that I wanna leave for a discussion for another day.

...

But, again, to kind prove Rant antoinette when as a taste and her power asked

...

queen of France is we see the portrait next to hers,

...

is another woman.

...

who has the same same sort of look, like

...

too wise and these beautiful feathers that look almost things exactly like hers.

...

guess that, guys.

...

Trying to win fever with Marina Twenty

...

one last time

...

by em her lock.

...

that's ...so with that, I would love to open this up.

...

two questions,

...

comments discussion. Anything you guys wanna have

...

...

Absolutely. I am here to bring up the

...

for quarantine, John, welcome. Hi. Any questions comments discussions?

I I I love coming to your show know it's always so much fun with the

...

Well, thank you.

...

the the hairstyles. I can't

...

freaking imagine what these are women and have to go through and the absolute

...

pain and suffering freaking that they had to to deal with the extra five pounds on top of their

...

good

...

Oh, I know. Right? Like, absolutely. Like, the the whole idea of having to probably, like,

...

wait train your neck, like, that just blows my mind. A

...

I will Join, I will

...

actually guides you towards a really interesting documentary called good hair.

...

and it actually talks about African American women and their hairstyles, and it does talk

...

like, talk about this that even contemporary me of women,

...

who sit down for hours upon hours at a time to have their hair done in a

...

way and the weight of it as well too.

...

so I would just say if anyone else was interested, absolutely great documentary is

...

Believe Chris Rock is the

...

main narrator i host if you will of his documentary. Absolutely.

...

wild.

...

That'll will definitely look into it.

...

so, Adam, I loved how you incorporated like, the

...

economic status and everything that was going on at the time and and you have all these people

...

basically trying to play each other while the countries on the verge of ripping itself apart.

...

and it's

...

I don't know that part of that just kinda reminds me of or occur in state and politics. Like

...

Oh, John John. Yes.

...

always you always leave me into the points that I was trying to suddenly like,

...

dance around because I just was like, oh, no. I just I don't wanna get on that till.

...

But absolutely. Absolutely so. If we're kinda go there, we're gonna go there. This is

...

I agree with you a hundred percent John. We ...there's so many

...

very chilling

...

parallels between the french revolution and and what

...

predecessor it at a predecessor

...

the predecessors. Yes. The predecessor of the French revolution

...

and what's happening here now

...

it's just

...

it's wild.

...

I have to ask kinda going back to the topics

...

Yeah.

...

stirring were just decorative weren't ...I hope they were just decorated.

...

Well, that's okay. I have no idea. I feel like this is

...

right up John Valley. Spooky John is we like to call him here on Fireside.

...

is he ...like, I don't actually know. And there are any historical tech

...

written, specifying whether or not there were people human remains if you

...

inside these orange, I desperately hope not. Because of my

...

Yeah.

...

would been really weird, but not being said. Who knows?

...

Ryan. But I in as well as that,

...

the creep of imagine someone mimicking your exact law.

...

you're trying to ...and that's quite creepy as well with them

...

you know, the people that try to gain in favor.

...

It is

...

like cannot not imagine.

...

Well, wow. Such an insightful, you know, his

...

historical discussion with incorporating your artwork, there

...

If anyone else has any questions, comments thoughts they wanna

...

share. You are always welcome. That's what makes it. The curious are and and

...

I want people to be curious.

...

Now, quick, but while we're waiting for anyone else, quick little fun facts around

...

trivia facts, if you will that you can take to you with you for the next trivia night.

...

is one of my parents is the proof was so

...

well popularized and became so fashionable.

...

that one of my favorite people in England, Georgia, the duchess of Death,

...

also

...

boarded a poof. And because George Hoop was a pacemaker maker in England,

...

she was like, the, like, a fashion icon of England at the time.

...

And because she wore approve, it became all the rage throughout England.

...

So the goof wasn't just a smash hit in on in, like,

...

France, It also was a smash in England, which I think is so cool.

...

Another fun fact. Someone could

...

consider the modern b high hairdo do to be a contemporary take on the poof.

...

So

...

P emmy y in house, but, like, her hair basically is said to be

...

a pic on it on the poop, which I think is incredibly

...

thing. And I would love if anyone is out there who does

...

the sorts of silent

...

hair styling or fashion filing who knows where about this, please

...

you find me, I would absolutely love it.

...

and that being said, since someone else seems to be coming up, I'm just gonna wrap us all up here.
