Hairstyles that tease are not the same as a light touch-up with
a comb. The effect is far more profound. Walk softly, for you can as
easily sway the heart of a beau, the attention of a nation, or the
pathway of a culture. Think of Suzie Wong, and you will understand that
this technique usually goes hand-in-hand with the costume, though it
does not have to be so blatant.
Think of a fly-fishing expedition. The line is cast, the imitation of an insect is affixed to the end and settles lightly and briefly to the surface of the water. Deep below, it is watched by two large anticipating eyes. The line is drawn away, the imitation fly departs the surface, and a large-mouth bass is regretful that it did not strike while it had the chance. So it settles in for a patient wait. Luck is with it. The delicious shape reappears for an instant on the surface; the fish lunges, the fly is consumed, the hook is set, and our large-mouth bass is moments and a brief struggle from being hauled out of the water, cleaned, spitted, cooked and eaten. And that's what hairstyles that tease are all about.
Let's look at this from the viewpoint of a 1757 writer: "When the British Lady thinks fit to dress so as to discover the whole Breast, the British Gentleman soon looks upon it with as much indifference as the naked Indian looks upon all the rest; but if she covers it with a handkerchief and contrives this covering so that it will accidentally discover what it appears intended to hide, the Glimpse that is thus casually given immediately and forcibly seizes the Imagination, and every Motion is watched in hopes that it will be repeated ... if by any accident a Lady discover half her Leg, the Fancy is instantly alarmed, though when the Actress appears in breeches and discovers the whole, she is the Object of indifference ... for the same reason that the Figure of a naked Venus produces less effect than that of a dressed Figure with the petticoat raised so as to discover the garter."
