This fun family day at the Penn Museum will include birthday cake with the Sphinx and Egyptian-themed activities. The Philadelphia Society presents a special hands-on recreation of ancient hair styles by prominent, Baltimore hair stylist Janet Stephens, whose demonstration of the hair styles of the Vestal Virgins at last year's Annual Meeting was quite a hit. Women with sufficiently long hair will be styled with the same techniques and flair as historic luminaries such as Cleopatra, Livia, Lesbia, or Julia. Read more »
