For the better part of the Queen Marie Antoinette's reign over France, one man was entrusted with the sole responsibility of ensuring that her coiffure was at its most ostentatious best. Marie Antoinette's Head tells the story of Leonard Autie, Marie Antoinette’s hairdresser and confidante, the man responsible for the style that made her the envy of France and for the uproar that dragged her to the guillotine.
