Hairstyles for Men
It's pretty exciting to own an ancestor photo from long ago. We may know it is a photo of Great-Grandfather Jacob, but how can we figure out when it was taken? We have an idea when Jacob was born but we can't date the photograph based on his year of birth. Below are some ways to identify approximate dates of antique photos through hairstyle clues.
There was a wide range of acceptable hair styles and facial hair styles in the 1860s. Men’s hair during the ante-bellum and Civil War periods tended to be longer, about collar length on the sides.
