Hairdo!: What We Do and Did to Our Hair
Ruth Freeman Swain (au); Cat Bowman Smith (il)
There are about 100,000 hairs on our heads, but even more ways to grow, style, cut, color, and shave them. Ancient Egyptians not only shaved their heads and wore wigs, but placed melting beeswax cones on top of the wigs to keep themselves cool. In 18th-century Europe, some women’s hair rose as high as two feet above their heads and was coated with lard and flour, their idea of hair spray. This witty book offers a host of fascinating facts about hair around the world and through history. Reinforced library binding. Full-color illustrations.
