Brought to you from Assouline Publishing, Hair, is a stunning hardback portfolio curated by renowned stylist John Barrett of the iconic and symbolic hairstyles that have defined our cultural world. With an introduction from fashion writer, Lynn Yaeger, Hair explains how a hairstyle is like a visual statement of one’s inner personality, a way of communicating an individual’s concept of personal and political identity. For this reason, a hairstyle is more than a simple adornment, it can tell us about a culture’s overall standard of beauty and is capable of evoking a single moment in time, or defining an entire era.
Throughout history and especially over the past century, hairstyles of cultural figures and media celebrities herald evolving social values. From Roaring Twenties bobs to punk Mohawks, 18th-century perroquets to dreadlocks and afros, in Hair you will find 150 illustrations of the coiffures and cuts that have changed the world.
