Hair, and its association with art and fashion, has until now been a sadly neglected subject. This book provides a fascinating study of the history of hair, and discusses how fahion and events have influenced hair styles (especially those of women) around the world. The author looks at international fashion, and explores the similar and contrasting trends that have developed in different countries. Superb illustrations together with succinct captions and running text make this book an entertaining and informative read.
This book will appeal to any woman seeking inspiration for her own hair, to the male voyeur, the social or art historian, the hairdresser or, indeed, anyone with a fascination for this hitherto little-recorded aspect of human fashion and fantasy.

I did enjoyed reading this book. It has a lot of reproductions of famous paintings and explaining how hair was done. It's incredible how much time people spent on their appearance -)
