So I started reading volume one of Proust's Remembrance of Things Past and I think I've made an important discovery I'm not sure has been covered in the numerous websites and articles about the fearfull Mullet Hairstyle:
On page 14, the character Swann is described as having hair, "...done in the Bressant style..."
In the notes section it states:
"Bressant: a well-known actor (1815-1886) who introduced a new hair-style which involved wearing the hair short in front and fairly long behind."previous next
