Historical Hairdos

Hair styles, like clothing, go through trends and fads that sometimes make us look back and say, "What was I thinking?" I've had bangs, mullets, Jheri curls, pixies, and purple hair, but all those pale in comparison to some of the hairstyle fads of history. Some were an attempt at beauty or cutting-edge fashion, while others signified status, either officially or unofficially. Weird History takes us on a ride through time by highlighting some of the more memorable or consequential hairstyles of various places and historical eras.

It's a tough row to hoe finding a style that makes you stand out and unique without deviating too far from what's in fashion. The line between cutting edge and ridiculous is very thin.
A lot of women I worked with had company badges with a picture taken when they were hired in the 1980's. The hairstyles were embarrassing 20 years later.
