The History of Hair : Fashion and Fantasy Down the Ages Hardback


A history of hair, and a study of its association with art and fashion.

The author looks at international fashion, and explores the similar and contrasting trends that have developed in different countries.

There are illustrations with succinct captions and running text.

The book should 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 aspect of human fashion and fantasy.
