Bronze Age[ edit ] In Bronze Age razors were known and in use by some men, but not on a daily basis since the procedure was rather unpleasant and required resharpening of the tool which reduced its endurance. Women coloured their hair, curled it, and pinned it up ponytail in a variety of ways.
They set their hair in waves and curls using wet clay, which they dried in the sun and then combed out, or else by using a jelly made of quince seeds soaked in water, or curling tongs and curling irons of various kinds.
Eventually noblewomen's hairstyles grew so complex that they required daily attention from several slaves and a stylist in order to be maintained. The hair was often lightened using wood ashunslaked lime and sodium bicarbonateor darkened with copper filings, oak-apples or leeches marinated in wine and vinegar.
Under the Byzantine Empirenoblewomen covered most of their hair with silk caps and pearl nets. It was normally little styled by cutting, as women's hair was tied up on the head and covered on most occasions when outside the home with a snoodkerchief or veil ; for an adult woman to wear uncovered and loose hair in the street was often restricted to prostitutes.
Braiding and tying the hair was common. In the 16th century, women began to wear their hair in extremely ornate styles, often decorated with pearls, precious stones, ribbons and veils.
Women used a technique called "lacing" or "taping," in which cords or ribbons were used to bind the hair around their heads. In the later half of the 15th century and on into the 16th century a very high hairline on the forehead was considered attractive, and wealthy women frequently plucked out hair at their temples and the napes of their necks, or used depilatory cream to remove it, if it would otherwise be visible at the edges of their hair coverings.
In Italy it was common for men to dye their hair. The beard had been in a long decline and now disappeared among the upper classes. Perukes or periwigs for men were introduced into the English-speaking world with other French styles when Charles II was restored to the throne infollowing a lengthy exile in France.
These wigs were shoulder-length or longer, imitating the long hair that had become fashionable among men since the s. Their use soon became popular in the English court. The London diarist Samuel Pepys recorded the day in that a barber had shaved his head and that he tried on his new periwig for the first time, but in a year of plague he was uneasy about wearing it: Up, and put on my coloured silk suit, very fine, and my new periwig, bought a good while since, but darst not wear it because the plague was in Westminster when I bought it.
And it is a wonder what will be the fashion after the plague is done as to periwigs, for nobody will dare to buy any haire for fear of the infection? That it had been cut off the heads of people dead of the plague. Late 17th-century wigs were very long and wavy see George I belowbut became shorter in the midth century, by which time they were normally white George II.
A very common style had a single stiff curl running round the head at the end of the hair. By the late 18th century the natural hair was often powdered to achieve the impression of a short wig, tied into a small tail or "queue" behind George III. George I of Great Britain — wore long, naturally coloured wigs, little different from those of Charles II in the s George II — wore fairly long white wigs George III — wore short white wigs until he went mad, when his hair and beard were often left untended George IV — wore powdered hair as a young man, then switched to a neoclassical "Titus cut" Short hair for fashionable men was a product of the Neoclassical movement.A shoulder-dusting cut with long layers elongates your face.
