      Book Description
      With more than 100 historical bath, beauty, and cosmetic recipes, this
      hilarious romp through the medieval and Renaissance fashion world
      describes beauty practices that seem grotesque today: plucking
      eyebrows and eyelashes out, shaving foreheads, and dying hair blue.
      This collection of useful recipes and bizarre beauty practices offers
      a practical yet humorous look at the daily life of men and women of
      all classes in medieval and Renaissance Europe. From step-by-step
      instructions for period headdresses and hairstyles to odd grooming and
      hygiene practices, the intimate details of this resource bring the
      people of these periods to life.
