Rochester Victorian young man. Cabinet Card. Private Collection.
What was going on in his head when he decided to pose like this? His long front hair’s curled atop instead of slicked back like his contemporaries, not only that but his tie is going sideways too. Cuckoo bird! Did he try to be different? His hair reminds me of Mr. Burghy of the Civil War era. We’ll forgive him. He’s still a cutie!
Miller. Rochester N.Y. Handsome young man with curl.

Mr. Fauxhawk tintype. Private Collection.
Well, look at Mr. Handsome here with the goatee and hair style a good hundred years ahead of its time! He seems to have had the confident attitude to match his individual style. And the rose tinted cheeks soften up the whole look some, don’t they?
Random wiki factoid: the fauxhawk is known in the Hoxton and Shoreditch districts of London as the “Hoxton fin”.
