Hair fashion through the ages

The history of the hairstyle is an eventful one. For thousands of years, hair has been used for the social-cultural manifestation of gender, status, style, political attitudes, norm and value systems. Different times have always produced different hair fashions – cultures, icons and historical figures can be recognized not least by their magnificent hair.

There were combs in the graves of ancient Egypt, badly coiffured men were threatened with fines in ancient Greece, hair of married women came “under the hood”, redheads were persecuted as witches, men and women discovered the wig for themselves, Sissi swore by one hundred strokes of her brush, the perm came into fashion, the hair dryer was invented. And today – hairstyles shape the self-staging of politicians, athletes, stars and those who want to become one. The current hair-madness goes from hair implants to waxing studios to tattooing of the eyebrows. No hair stays on the other.

 

The FRISEUM is dedicated to popular science and is explicitly audience-oriented. With a good mix of information and entertainment – physical and lively, intuitive and playful. Here you can perfume, curl, braid, dye and brush.

For the co-curation we are looking for hair experts from history, health, pop culture, fashion, science and economy. The integrative workshop and curation process we have developed addresses the following questions: How does the hairstyle shape the cultural history, how does the cultural history shape the hairstyle? What is the interaction between hairstyle, religion, politics, youth movement, or sexuality? Why does a hairstyle shape an era? What famous hairstyles are there, what are their stories? And where does the hairstyle actually start and where does it end?

The ambitious goal: Via nextmuseum.io we find the exhibition site(s), exhibits, collaborators and sponsors.
