The Queen's Coiffeur: The Novel

Published: 9/5/2022

THE QUEEN’S COIFFEUR is the story of Leonard Autié, the role he played in the life of his most famous client, and the chaotic and history-making world in which he rose to prominence.

Was Leonard indirectly responsible for the very first attacks upon the queen, found in inflammatory pamphlets circulating as early as 1775. The attacks were prompted by Leonard's incredibly fanatical hairstyles, concoctions that reached such a height that it was necessary for ladies to kneel on the carriage floor--or hold the towering hairpieces outside the coach windows en route to gala balls and the opera.
