It started on January 3.   At 9 pm. On PBS. The final season of Masterpiece Theatre’s “Downton Abbey.”  With inspirational programs before and after the 9 pm event.  Catch up if you have missed it.  Worth it for the fashions alone.

In later episodes, watch for bobs, bandeaux, browbands, like this beaded version worn by Michelle Dockery as Lady Mary Crawley. See “The Downton Times” article in “The New York Sunday Times” today.  Check how the Howard Carter discovery of King Tutankhamen’s tomb in 1922 influenced jewelry, fashion, furniture, film, art – and hair.  The Egyptian Bob, inspired by Egyptian art made an  appearance, and  headbands had an ancient Egyptian look, as worn by flappers of the era, and in one scene in Downton, not shown here.   What should catch on will be the headband bandeau, worn this way and that with many hairstyles.   Stay tuned …
