Toga praetexta
Late Republican Hairstyles

Unsuspecting visitors to Old Main were rubbing their eyes as they took in a display of the latest fads from the 1st century B.C. by students in Matt Panciera’s Roman History and Culture class, who dressed, styled their hair, and prepared food like ancient Romans for the day. Pictured here are Emilirose Rasmussen and Sarah Hulke, who got up at 6AM to give themselves imperial hairdos. Peter Gawtry came dressed in an historically authentic toga complete with purple stripe.
