Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764317342, Hardcover)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.
