Nothing defines a person like their hairstyle – and what a century it has been for hair! Bangs, bobs, buns, beehives and bouffants have vied with pixie cuts, pin curls, perms and pageboys for ascendancy in an ever-changing parade of ladies’ looks and trends, and among the men we’ve seen Caesers, comb overs, ducktails, faux hawks, flattops, quiffs and slick backs. From the Edwardian era through the seismic changes of the ’20s and ’60s, and including every quirky twist hair history took on its way to the turn of the millennium, this book is a lush visual survey of a hundred years of hair styles and the great stylists of the century including Jackie Kennedy’s stylist Mr. Kenneth and innovators like Vidal Sassoon.

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.

BUY: Encyclopedia of Hair: A Cultural History
Examines the ways in which hair has served as a signifier of class, gender, ethnicity, conformity/non-comfority, authority, and power throughout history. Countless issues and examples are explored in this volume including: hair styles of royalty; wigs worn by lawmakers and judges; ceremonial hairstyles of tribes throughout the world; Oliver Cromwell’s Roundheads; hair in the counterculture (including the musical Hair); skinheads, Mohawks and punk style; the hairstyles of First Ladies; celebrity hairstyles; women shaving their heads to subvert gender and sexuality stereotyping; the entire hair-care industry; the search for a cure to baldness; and diseases and disorders related to hair. Broad topics in this book include hair arrangement/styling; care and cleansing; business and commercial aspects; laws and legal matters; trends and trendsetters; and health and science. An introductory essay explores the universal human interest in hair and hair-styling throughout history and around the world. It is followed by alphabetically arranged entries, each including sources for further reading. This work is highly relevant to the study of class, gender, popular culture, and politics. A lavish set of color and halftone illustrations completes this fun and useful title.

Review
“This work by Sherrow wins the browsability award, for both its topic and its eye-catching cover. As the only current reference book on hair, it will certainly find a place on many library shelves. Global in scope, its coverage includes biographical information (Max Factor, Elizabeth I), ethnicities and countries (African Americans, China), hairstyles (the bob, dreadlocks), and other hair-related entries (dandruff, hairpins)….[i]t provides a good first stop and a lengthy bibliography on the topic of hair. Recommended. Academic and beauty-related collections serving lower-level undergraduates, two-year technical program students, practitioners, and general readers.” – Choice

“To many, hair is a reflection of personal style. It is also a signifier of class, gender, ethnicity, and even power. In this resourceful A-to-Z, Sherrow explores the impact of hair styles and their implications in various cultures throughout history. The essay-length entries, accompanied by black-and-white photos as well as a full-color photo insert, cover everything from celebrity hair (e.g., the Rachel) and the hair care business (e.g., Vidal Sassoon) to disorders (e.g., dandruff) and organizations (e.g., Locks of Love).” – Library Journal

“Hairstyles reflect cultural, religious, and political beliefs; social status; occupation; health; and other key aspects of life. In her introduction to the universal preoccupation with hair grooming, Sherrow overviews scientific facts about hair, its social meaning, and the hair products industry. Cross-referenced entries from adornment, ornamental to Zotos, International include historical-cultural context, trends, trendsetters, B&W and some color illustrations, and further reading. This unique reference includes an extensive bibliography.” – Art Book News Annual

“Anyone interested in hair fashion and treatment, either as it immediately affects them or from the perspective of a historical period or a different ethnic group will learn from this book.” – Reference Reviews

“The Encyclopedia of Hair is a useful starting point for research on this multidisciplinary topic….the Encyclopedia of Hair covers a bald spot in reference collections in academic, public, and vocational school libraries.” – Reference & User Services Quarterly

“There is fascinating stuff here for anybody prepared to comb through it.” – Times Literary Supplement

“Hair has displayed more than changing styles: it’s served as an indicator of class, gender, conformity and power throughout history – and Encyclopedia of Hair: A Cultural History follows the changing issues surrounding hair and styles. World history and all cultures are taken into account throughout, with chapters opening with an essay on the overall topic, followed by alphabetically arranged entries along with black and white photos and bibliographic references. Any college-level holding strong in not only history and culture but fashion will find this appealing to many different genres.” – Midwest Book Review/California Bookwatch

“Victoria Sherrows survey of the history of hair explores the meanings attached to head dressings in different periods and cultures around the world. Her scope includes specific hair styles, the treatment of facial hair, grooming tools, colorants, ornaments, hair diseases and beliefs. The impact of innovative hairdressers, advertising, and trendsetting celebrities is also examined. Finally, the coverage also includes the hair care business and consumer safety issues. Dozens of color and black-and-white photographs illustrate numerous fashions, but fortunately no mullets. The often anecdotal entries may not satisfy every research need, but Sherrow has conveniently compiled a wealth of information that could previously only be gleaned from a variety of clothing, fashion, anthropological and historical encyclopedias. Her notes also provide students with other potential avenues of research. Her handy volume will be welcomed in public and academic libraries.” – Lawrence Looks at Books

“Encyclopedia of Hair is an insightful and thorough academic book looking at the subject throughout time….It helps to know about the history of your hair to justify paying $18 for a tiny tube of serum, but hair history won’t squirt back at you.” – MetroLA

BUY: Hairstyles: Ancient to Present
A woman’s hair has always been regarded as her crowning glory—and as a way to change her appearance dramatically. Hairstyles celebrates the complex art of hairdressing from its earliest-known beginnings to the present day, as well as the famous names behind the cuts. More than 1,000 illustrations and photographs include astonishingly ornate eighteenth-century powdered wigs bedecked with ostrich feathers, flowers, and jewels; glamorous 1940s film stars and their carefully waved and dressed hair; advertisements for hair treatments and products going back to the 18th century; and the poker-straight lengths so fashionable in the 1990s. Hairstyles is not only a stunning documentation of the history of styling, but a unique inspiration.

Hairstyles and Fashion: A Hairdresser’s History of Paris, 1910-1920 (Dress, Body, Culture)

BUY: Hairstyles and Fashion: A Hairdresser’s History of Paris, 1910-1920 (Dress, Body, Culture)
The way a society deals with hair speaks volumes about its structures, its wealth, and its values. How is hair arranged? Is it left long or cut short? How often is it washed? Do men and women treat their hair differently and what does this tell us about gender?

This stimulating book contains articles written by the Paris hairstylist Emile Long between December 1910 and December 1920 for an English trade journal. Long’s purpose in writing was to keep English coiffeurs informed about the goings-on in the world of fashion and hairdressing in France, and especially in Paris. In doing so he has provided us with a personal cultural history of the world’s most fashionable city in a period that stretches from the end of the Belle Epoque, through the First World War, and into the opening year of the Roaring Twenties. His investigation of hairstyles and fashion inevitably leads him to a fascinating discussion of important historical issues: the ‘true’ nature of Woman; the genesis and democratization of fashion; and popular attitudes towards hygiene. With his engaging literary style Long invites us to think about consumer habits and technology, notions of fashion and cleanliness, and changing ideals of femininity and the social order.

Students and scholars of history, fashion and French society will enjoy these rich and revealing accounts of what hair means to identity and culture.

Review
“The evolution of fashion is driven by “some internal logic of mind and eye” rather than by sex or functional considerations [for Steven Zdatny]. It is a proposition which readers may test for themselves, both in Zdatny’s sharp, stimulating introduction and in the main business of this engaging, handsomely illustrated book: the penseés of Emile Long, a Parisian coiffeur de dames … Tut-tutting, sniffily pompous and snobbish, Emile Long … lights up the social history of his times.” ―TLS

“Since January, when the Washington Post persuaded him to untangle the significance of Paula Jones’s sleek hair makeover, Steven Zdatny has reigned as this country’s most quoted expert on ‘the aesthetics and politics of hair.” ―Lingua Franca

“At first sight a study of fashionable hairdressing might seem an unlikely topic for academic attention. However, as Steven Zdatny’s collection illustrates, even a hairstyle can offer valuable historical insights, especially since this aspect of material culture comes already loaded with symbolism and cultural meaning.” ―French History

“This book leads us to discoveries of Belle Epoque trends, and immerses us in a strikingly interesting world.” ―New Zealand Journal of French Studies.

Continuing interest in life on the Home Front during the Second World War means that the style of the 1940s has never been more popular. People are recreating the look for plays and films, reenactments, 1940s themed events, or just because they enjoy dressing in vintage fashions. “The 1940s Look” tells you everything you need to know about the fashions of wartime Britain and the impact that rationing, the Utility scheme, changing tastes and the demands of everyday life had on the styles people wore. People had to ‘Make Do and Mend’ – with varying degrees of ingenuity and success. Hair styles, glasses, jewelry, and tattoos were essential in creating your own fashion statement. Women’s magazines advised readers on the difficulties of dressing growing children, offered instructions for making clothes and accessories, and hosted debate over whether by dressing up, women were helping or hindering the war effort. Thoroughly researched and lavishly illustrated, “The 1940s Look” tells you how civilian men, women and children dressed – and why they looked the way they did during the Second World War. It draws on contemporary sources including government advice, periodicals and books, and benefits from an entertaining narrative by author Mike Brown.
