Colonial hairstyle was worn during the period 1714 to 1811. It was often worn by upper-class French ladies with dramatic rolls. This style was known as an eccentric fashion trend and it was harshly criticized by some social critics. Queen Marie Antoinette has been known to support this hairstyle with great enthusiasm. The hairstyle lost its popularity in the 1800s just like other similar styles.
To create this hairstyle, first brush the hair fully to prevent tangles and spread a generous amount of volumizing mousse to the hair roots. Then separate a small section of hair a using rat-tail comb at the crown of your head. The parted section must be 2 to 3 inches thick and then secure it into a ponytail with an elastic hair band. Create hair donut with the ponytail and pin the donut to the head using bobby pins. Wrap your ponytail around the hair donut and then secure it using bobby pins which will serve as the base of the high roll. Separate rest of the hair into small sections and backcomb each of them forward as well as backward a few times to create a larger volume. Brush your hair and pull it all over the top bun to get a high ponytail. Finger comb the hair and coil the ponytail around the index finger close to the scalp. At last mist all of your hair with a hairspray to keep the hairstyle in place.
