History hair

With my experienced eye and your wishes, we will look closely at what suits you best

1800

After the prevailing fashion, this century has been called the “wig time”. The peruke wig shrinks and gets a more civilized impression. Later the wig is tied with a bow from behind (tail wig). Typical of this eighteenth-century period are the towering women’s haircuts, which are true works of art of real hair combined with horsehair and a construction of metal or cushions. The whole is decorated with pearls, jewelery, feathers and pieces of fabric.

1900

The top bun was also completely hot around 1900! Volume was a must whether you had long or short hair. This hairstyle was inspired by the “Gibson Girl” drawings which were very popular at the time. The Gibson Girl and her haircut is considered the first national beauty standard for American women.

1910

Around 1910, long hair often became popular. Women wore it loose and wavy or updo and embellished with many accessories. The haircut “curtain hair” was also very popular. With this hairstyle, the hair was wrapped around a hair band in several layers. At parties and special occasions, rings and other jewelry were attached to the hair band.

1920

In the 1920’s, the Charleston dance, the loose curls were over. Tight and short bob lines of all shapes and sizes were the trend! A popular bob haircut was the “eton crop”, which was so named because it gave a boyish look.

1930

In 1930, the short bob remains fashionable, but with a twist, literally! Short curly bob hairstyles were hot in the 1930’s. These curls were also called “finger curls”.

1940

The 1940s were those of the Pin Up Girl; often beautiful blond women who encouraged soldiers to brave battle. The hair trend around this time was therefore country curly hair. Often one strand of the hair was rolled up and pinned to one side of the head. We now call this way of rolling up and securing the hair the “victory roll” haircut.

1950

In 1950, every woman wanted to look like actress Audrey Hepburn. She was small, very elegant, had a wasp waist, and a full head of black hair with tight bangs. The hair was often worn updo but had a lot of volume. Chignons, the chic low bun, were also often worn.

1960

We go from long hair back to short! Actress Mia Farrow and model Twiggy brought back the boyish short haircut that we now describe as “pixie”. Also the “beehive” haircut (which literally looked like you had a beehive on your head) and the inverted bob, where the tips of the hair curled inwards, were also seen a lot.

1970

The hippie years arrived! Everyone felt free and peace and love was the life motto of the youth of that time. This was also reflected in the hairstyles of our time; ponies, layers, short spines and long wavy hair, anything goes!

1980

In the 1980’s the world was under the spell of perms, lots of volume, cock combs, scarves and the “whale spout”. This last hairstyle is back in fashion now, but as a half high tail. In addition, the short hair also remained fashionable, but with different layers.able, but with different layers.

1990

The golden years for the supermodels started. Naomi Campbell and her long straight locks, Cindy Crawford with her thick, full head of hair and satiny brown hair from Carla Bruni, inspired many women of our time. But most of all, “the Rachel” was the haircut that most women asked at the hairdresser.

2000

From 2000 to 2010, there was not really one haircut that all women wanted to be seen in. Of course, just out of bed hair were the favorite hairstyles of our time. A number of stars were spotted with colored extensions and waffle hair.

2010 untill now

Early 2010 to 2014 were good years for the blondes. Honey blonde, vanilla blonde, golden blonde, bronze, all shades of blonde passed by. Long hair with soft curls was the hairstyle most women wanted to be seen in. This hairstyle was introduced by a well-known lingerie brand, who sent her models onto the catwalk with long wavy locks. The hair is well-groomed, preferably with layers and sexy curls.
