History of Hairstyle Appreciation Day
Although no one knows when the first hairstylist took scissors to someone's head, we do know that scissors have been around for 2,000 years. Haircuts have been popular since the middle Ages. Throughout history, hairstyles have been a symbol of social class, racial identity, marital status, religious beliefs, and gender norms. For example, by the mid-18th century the 'pouf' style had evolved, for both men and women, emphasizing volume and curls, using everything from wigs, strings, fabrics and animal hairs to hair effects development (just look at Marie Antoinette.)
During World War I, women around the world began to cut their hair shorter, so it was more manageable, still taking advantage of the volume and curls. During the 1950s, men's haircuts were mostly short, with some styling gels and hair styling - James Dean's cool, easy long hairdo was one of the most influential icons of the social anarchy and youth rebellion of the time. Marilyn Monroe's hair (short and permed) slowly transitioned back to a bouncy "Hairspray", and bangs became popular in the 1960s, inspired by Audrey Hepburn and other celebrities.
The 1970s introduced many original hairstyles and cuts, including dreadlocks, afros, mullet, and permanent waves, or 'perms', for both men and women. Hairstylists had to apply chemicals to their hair, wrap their hair in waves and curls, or perform chemical or relaxing straightening. Can we all agree that perms should be in the 70s?
In the 2000s, straight hair colors and styles became more popular. Nowadays, hairstyles are very diverse, from ruffled hairstyles to straight hairstyles, and natural hair is in trend. Stylists who have been able to cut hairstyles through the ages, change our appearance, and change the way we feel about ourselves in general - on a date - deserve to be honored.
