Aah, the heat and humidity of summer are doing a number on my hair these days. It seems to grow faster, and get curlier in the strangest ways. That must be why I just recently came across a blog for the hair obsessed. Isn’t the Internet great?
Well, yes, but the library’s better. Did you know that we can help you decide on your next hair style? Well, perhaps not exactly help you decide, but, as always, provide you with the resources you need to make your decision. We subscribe to several hair style magazines:
Plus, we have all sorts of books that can provide a wonderful array of options to choose from:
- Encyclopedia of Hair: A Cultural History, by Victoria Sherrow. (Some people write blogs, some people write encyclopedias!)
- Wimples and Crisping Pins: Being Studies in the Coiffure and Ornaments of Women, by Theodore Child. (This one’s from 1895… I told you there are all kinds of options!)
- The Complete Book of Hairstyling, by Charles Worthington.
- Hairstyles: How to Have Beautiful Hair, Step-by-Step, with Over 30 High-Impact Simple-to-Use Techniques, Looks and Makeovers to Do at Home, by Jacki Wadeson.
- Queens: Portraits of Black Women and Their Fabulous Hair, by Michael Cunningham and George Alexander.
- Feng Shui Beauty: Bringing the Ancient Principles of Balance and Harmony to Your Hair, Makeup and Personal Style, by Billy Yamaguchi.
On top of all of that, you can make an interest in hair into a multimedia experience! There’s always the musical, or you can read a Bubbles mystery, about a hairdresser-turned-investigative-journalist.
So next time you’re in the market for a new hair style, stop by! You’ll get an expert opinion (on how to find what you’re looking for).
