Wu Zetian whips her hair around : a glimpse at Tang dynasty hairstyles

This is such an interesting post about female hair styles of the Chinese Tang Dynasty that I have to share it here. By the way, whoever has thought ancient China is a close-minded country would be surprised to know that the Tang Dynasty is one of the most culturally-diversified periods of China. ^^

Meow If you don’t love your hair as much as Shirley, Fan Bingbing sports some of Tang dynasty’s fanciest wigs to give you some options..

If you have 260 outfits like Fan Bingbing‘s Wu Zetian, then you certainly got to have the perfect hairstyle to match each one. Here are a round-up of some of Tang imperial fashion a la The Empress of China while we wait for Li Shimin to die already (Seriously, we’re over half way through the drama and the ex-husband haven’t even died yet. Shouldn’t this happen in ep 1 of most dramas?).

Note that I’m no expert at all, and the drama is no historical documentary. Plus, being a drama of the imperial court, most styles are highly decorative and not really what you would see in everyday Tang.
