A fascinating timeline of hair fashion emerges through a progression of images. This extensively illustrated history of hairstyles is a guide for theatrical hairstylists- costumers- and historical reenactors- and provides invaluable reference for dating vintage photographs. Employing nearly 500 period photographs and illustrations- it shows how everyday men- women- and children have worn their hair- while providing a surprisingly intriguing glimpse into their lives. Organized chronologically- the book demonstrates the common use of supplemental hairpieces (always)- and the years that Grecian coiffures (1836)- center parts (1840s to 70s)- curls (1860s)- combs (1870)- French twists (1890)- and bobbed hair (1925) were introduced. From Madame Pompadour to the Gibson Girls- the ladies of fashion kept up with competitive- and sometimes eccentric- hairstyles. This informative- entertaining- and easy-to-use guide cleverly relates how people really once wore their hair.... Please click here to ask a question
