Fontange

[fawn-tahnzh]
A fontange is the name of a hairstyle popular in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries in France. The name originates from the Marquise de Fontange. Starting out as being a hairstyle with a ribbon in the hair it soon became larger and larger and ended up as a complex hairstyle hard to create and difficult to wear. The fontange, in all its forms, was popular between 1680 and 1710.
