Hair & FashionBook - 2005
Hair and Fashion considers both the historical development of this relationship and its contemporary significance, focusing on key moments from the 1920s bob to the long-haired hippie look of the 1960s and the more contemporary Hoxton Fin. The role of colour for hair and its cultural meanings have become increasingly important in the twenty-first century, an era in which most women have dyed their hair at least once, and Hair and Fashion also looks closely at the role of the blonde, brunette and redhead in popular culture. including ground-breaking fashion shoots by top photographers, as well as new, specially commissioned photographs. Haircuts and hairstyles, as this book reveals, are no mere simple incursions into hair taming and conformity but a living, growing embodiment fo cultural codes and meanings with the potential to turn someone into a walking work of art.
