I used to have really long hair. Right now it is above shoulder length. So extra hair is needed. Now, even Victorian ladies who had long hair used hair pieces. Most women did not have the hair volume for many of the more fancy styles. Right now I use 2 pieces. An accordion wiglet and a fake braid. The wiglet is very curly and has 4 combs. The braid has a clip on one end.
Please bear with me as this is a somewhat quick tutorial and a bit messier than normal.
I then use a small diameter curling iron to curl the front of my hair. Since I am brushing it out I am not super picky about the curl placement. I did not do a real good job here of parting my hair ear to ear. But you get the idea.

Now I will wrap the braid around my head in front of the wiglet. Starting at the base of my neck, up and over to the other side. I use many pins.
