How Several Cultures Styled Hair in Earlier Times

Today, hair salons usually provide similar services no matter where in the world they are located. Even though most countries today have different styles, they are much more similar than they were before worldwide communication became easy. Besides giving a greater understanding of how different cultures are, understanding the history makes it easier to understand why hair salons provide the different services.

Hair salons in Egypt were a lot different from the original definition. Men and women alike had their heads shaved because Egypt was so hot regularly. It was very rare to see anyone in the area that had long hair, and as a result, it became the more attractive look. Instead of elaborate hair styles, wigs were instead used with curly dark hair for important ceremonies or for higher class folks. They used a lot of gold hairpins and other jewels to hold their hair in place and add a decorative touch.

Rome usually had a style that followed closely what the Greeks once used. This included using curling irons, dying hair blonde and using a powder throughout that added a gold sparkle look. Hair styles became very lavish before Rome fell. Hair frames were generally used to keep everything in place when making hair more elaborately styled. One of the first kinds of professional barber arrived at this time too, usually servicing upper class people on a daily basis to keep them looking good.

The hair styles in Japan were very interesting because of the variations in both hair types and their ornate style. Until about the 17th century, women commonly wore their hair loose and long, sometimes curling it. Once the styling had evolved, they used hair pins with precious metals and jewels to help keep the hair styles together. Some parts of the hair would hang free and other parts would be kept in place by the clips to create unique designs.

Once each of these countries started openly communicating with all the others, universal spa furniture and styling stations were designed to serve every purpose. Today, a normal hair salon can style hair in any way that women could possibly want, mastering the intricacies that were once very difficult to produce. It can be a lot of fun to find a picture of an Egyptian wig hairstyle of the past and bring it to a popular hair salon. Sometimes, even significantly “outdated” hair styles can look fantastic on someone today.
