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.
