Hair may be mere matter growing naturally from our bodies, yet we believe its shaping can shift our destinies – let’s face it, a poor haircut can blight the next six months. Whether curled, dyed, shaved or straightened, hair remains a potent force and there are many definitive moments in its history. Caroline Cox will trace the chronology of hair fashion throughout the 20th and 21st centuries placing the featured cuts, colours and techniques in their cultural context.
