This doll head exhibits a hairstyle from the mid-19th century called "high brow," characterized by a high center part with hair drawn back smoothly to reveal a high forehead while curls flare out over the ears and around the back of the head. The hair style appeared in Godey's Ladies' Book in 1862.
