By the 1780s the “Hedgehog” coiffure was a trendy hairstyle with a curled or frizzed halo of face-framing shorter hair. The style was softened by long flowing side and back curls.  A gold and green fringed scarf  is wrapped as a casual turban headdress. The neckline is framed by a white kerchief, with a floral nosegay of silk flowers in the décolletage. Other accents include garnet-red gloves and a favorite miniature portrait set as a pendant on a black ribbon.
