“While hairdo trends throughout history may seem trivial, they can actually reveal quite a lot about a particular culture.”
To quote Oscar Wilde, “A fashion is merely a form of ugliness so absolutely unbearable that we have to alter it every six months!”
This quote doesn’t just apply the physical fashions that we’ve worn throughout the ages. It applies to hairstyles as well.
If you look at history, humans have had some really interesting hairstyles – some of which we’re glad to see the back of!
But these hairstyles aren’t just an expression of fashion, just a popular way for both men and women to showcase their wealth, social status, marital status, etc.
As Tom Blank of Weird History goes into the history of hairstyles, we get a closer look at what hair has meant for humans throughout the ages. It’s all quite fascinating!
In the video, Blank says: “Since the dawn of human civilization, people have had to figure out something cool to do with their hair and while hairdo trends throughout history may seem trivial, they can actually reveal quite a lot about a particular culture.”
It’s interesting to think how hairstyles have changed so drastically over time!
