There's a scene in GWTW that opens with Scarlett trying to do her hair in a new style called "Cats, rats and mice." I've always been curious what that looked like. Knowing MM, she didn't make that up but it really was a hairstyle trend from that time. Do they show it in this book?

I don't like the sound of the Cats, Rats and Mice style, but love the Waterfall. Nice to see that hair extensions and false bits were popular back then! Nothing really changes does it?
