The extraordinary hairstyle is the hair that amazes and attracts the
most attention, without appearing ludicrous. In many cases, it has been
the invention of an amateur. Professional stylists are always trying
something new, but they usually keep it as a variation of what already
exists. The truly new, and extraordinary hairstyle does not have to be
anything garrish -- with artificial attachments and abnormal colors, nor
should it simply be a re-invention of something old. The truly
extraordinary hairstyles are natural outgrowths of the decade in which
they were invented. For example, as women became more productive in
industry, they required hairstyles that could easily be protected from
machinery, with the result that the long flowing tresses began to
disappear once the woman was of working age. But even during her
enterprise, the woman needed to attract a mate, so she wanted something
that was in no way man-like, maintaining her unique femininity and
suggesting her youth. A good example were the short pigtails that
predominated in industrial societies, giving the woman safety,
attractiveness, and youth all in one.
This page hopes to show some inventive hairstyles that appear from time to time.
