Gibson Girl Hairstyle Tutorial – The Iconic Look of Charles Dana Gibson

Today I’m recreating the iconic look of the Gibson girls! This soft and voluminous Edwardian hairstyle is my favorite from the era! It took me lots of trial and error to figure out how to do this with my fine, thin hair but here are my results!

Historical Note: There are several variations of this hairstyle in Charles Dana Gibson’s illustrations, as hair fashions subtly changed shape throughout the era. This tutorial shows a variation appropriate for beginning of the era, approx. 1900-1906.

If you use this tutorial, I’d love to see the results! Tag me at @thejennylafleur on IG or FB or contact me on!

Looks like LBCC Apothecary no longer sells the brass hair pins I used but here is a link to the shop anyway – they have lots of great products and maybe they will bring them back someday!

These are some similar pins from another seller –
