Hot rods, plaits, curls

Over thousand of years, some very odd things have been done to hair. I heard about Persian soldiers which had their hair curled, 2000 years ago. Te curls were made by twisting the hair round hot rods. And the most interesting thing is that their thick beards and moustaches were curled to. Funny ! In about 1150., women grew their hair as long as they could, and they spent hours having their hair done in plaits. They wrapped the plaits in ribbons and put the end into metal cases. Hair is always tidy and neat in plaits, why not?!

Wigs and things

In the last 17th century men and women wore wigs. Wigs could be made from animal hair ( noone could wear it nowdays) someone else's hair, or even one's own hair. Tat was the time when women's wigs had become enormous! Imagine that :) They were padded out with pillows, decorated with feathers, ribbons and jewels. It took so long to have the wigs styled that they were worn for a month, and women had a scratching stick to use when they inched beneath the wig.

And today...

Today women treat their hairs in many ways. Professionals in this area can do whatever you wish with your hair! Some girls like to be without hair at all, but it's not fashionable even doesn't look nice (for me) !
