Does anyone know what this word "pimplico" might mean?
I’ve been reading book that is supposedly a journal from 1852 and the writer supposedly made the statement that the lady of the house did her hair in ”... pimplico fashion of twenty years ago”. I assumed the word pimplico was English, but could it be from French? Or could it be that the journal’s editor decided that the written word was pimplico, and it actually should have been something else? Does anyone have any suggestions, ideas or guesses about this?
