Information from the internet. Boudoir bed doll wigs. Most mohair wigs were fashioned with a simple "Marcel" or finger wave type style. Wavy mohair was stitched down as a part onto twill tape and then glued right onto the head. Hair was usually pulled to the back and secured with a bobby pin. Many times, hair was only placed around the front of the face and left with tendrils or styled to mimic a "bob" look. The bald back was covered by a hat or just left bald.
