Hair styles through the decades

Comparing hair styles through the decades, there are similarities to most of the finished look. Each look is soft and feminine.

Styles come and go, long, short, straight or curly, hair plays a major part in someone’s total look. These are a selection of hair styles from the 1900’s through to today. Although haircutting remains top of a stylists artistic talent and what they studied for and worked hard to achieve, there are so many other factors involved in creating beautiful hair.

Traditionally, the way to become a hairdresser is to attend College either full time or part time and gain salon experience by working there part or full time, often starting work on a Saturday whilst still at School.

Today, this way is still the most popular, although there are many different ways to qualify as a Hairdresser. The person that will stand in front of you and cut your hair, who you will perhaps build a relationship with as time goes on, will have studied hard, sat numerous exams and had many hours of practical experience before being let loose on paying clients!

The skill of hairdressing should never be underestimated, artistic ability knows no end.
