Writing and Research

20160430_104530Kristin and I both know that writing books takes a little research…or maybe a lot, depending on the story you’re writing.  And sometimes, that means more than looking up information on the internet or in books.

When Kristin  started writing about Marie Antoinette (or “M.A.”), she discovered that hair played an integral part in M.A.’s life. ;D

She had many styles and stylists. So Kristin and I decided to find out a little bit more about hair styles. There were a lot of illustrations and descriptions in books and online, but we wanted to know what steps the hairdressers had to follow to achieve those amazing styles. So we went to a beauty school to find out some of the things we didn’t know about hair and styles.

So, we sat our butts in the chair and let the hair stylists show us a few things about styling hair back in M.A.’s day.

That is a true mystery.
