Default Empress Eugenie

I'm not sure that curly was seen as a black/slave trait back in the 1800's. Here's a picture of Empress Eugenie (France) and her ladies from the 1850's or 60's. They're obviously not natural curls, so I think it shows how curls were fashionable then. And the ladies in America followed their fashion lead.
