do you know about the hair stylist named Janet Stephens? she's studied ancient roman hair styles and published some breakthrough scholarly articles (even though she isn't an academic herself) about how they were actually done. she has a youtube channel where she shows how to do very intricate ancient hair styles. the videos are strangely calming, too. I think you'd like it.
Ahh I have heard of her! I read an article about her a while back. I have no idea as to the veracity of her hairstylin’ tricks as I’ve never watched her videos myself (yet) but whatever the accuracy, it’s cool as balls!
