In my thirty years of experience doing hair, I have seen numerous trends in both the application of color products as well as cuts and styling. Many of these trends that I have seen are borrowing from other eras, decades or even centuries in the past. The 80’s for example, have always reminded me of the Victorian Era. Both of these time periods were characterized by styles that strived to look unnatural. Colors and styles revealed the effort of curling, pinning, coloring and teasing the hair. In the Victorian Era many women used an array of wigs, while hair in the 80’s often looked like wigs.
I have always felt that these styles in both time periods sought to say something profound about the person, that they were privileged enough to spend time and money on their hair.
