“A new style of net has been introduced, which is rather original; it is made of hair of the exact shade of the wearer’s. The fashion is to cut off a tress of hair and to give it to the hairdresser, who will get it made into a net, which, when worn upon the head, may be truly called “invisible.” They are netted over a fine mesh, and are exceedingly durable. As the hair is worn so low and full at the back, it is almost impossible to keep it neat with-out a net, which sustains the hair, and so prevents the dress and collar from being easily soiled.”
(Peterson’s Magazine, 1863)

To Net, or Not to Net: Revisited is an in depth look at the hair nets worn from 1855 through 1865. The 103 page e-book contains over 30 CDVs, numerous fashion illustrations, and directions for making hair nets right from Godey's, Peterson's and more.
