“To a Victorian observer, photographs of women with long, loose hair would be particularly titillating.”

“It was believed that a woman’s personality could be inferred from her hair. Curly-haired women were considered to be sweeter-natured than women with straight hair. Long, thick, loose hair was associated with a woman’s sexuality — the longer and thicker the hair, the more passionate the woman’s nature.”
