Relation

"Fantomina: Or, Love in a Maze" by Eliza Haywood.

Haywood takes great care in emphasizing the importance of hair on how well Fantomina's diguises fool Beauplaisir. Part of Fantomina "selling" her widow disguise is pinning her hair back; this gives the air of respectability, whilst also allowing her to appear sexually available.
