Overview

Hair and fashion are inextricably linked signs of the times, reflective of the prevailing zeitgeist. Whether long or cropped, curly or straight, hairstyles are a potent force. When combined with the latest fashions, hairstyles have created some of the most resonant images of the 20th century. This glamorous, well-illustrated book looks at the interdependent relationship between fashion and hair, using thematic chapters to investigate key moments such as the 1920s bob or the long-haired hippie look of the 1960s. Hair and Fashion also examines the role of the blonde, brunette, and redhead in popular culture.

Pictures of Jean Harlow and Marilyn Monroe; Mick Jagger and Jimi Hendrix; supermodels Linda Evangelista and Naomi Campbell; and popular icons such as Sarah Jessica Parker and Jennifer Lopez fill this book's lively pages. David Bailey, Edward Steichen, Nick Knight, and Cecil Beaton are just a few of the photographers whose work is represented.
