the history of your beard, man!

Male pogonotrophy, or the growing of facial hair, has previously been culturally associated with having an abundance of wisdom.  Religious male figures, such as Jesus, felt that it was an obligatory act.  While others just like the way it looks. Political figure, Abe Lincoln donned the whiskers to enhance his appearance, when he received a letter from an 11 year old girl stating he would look better with a beard.  

I have grasped the fact that my profession is, in a sense, coeval with the history of man. It began when man first had the notion that he must try to better his appearance; it will endure so long as the desire exists to beautify oneself. And that, say the prophets, is for as long as this planet continues to be inhabited.

-Charles De Zemler

ROCK the MULLET Rich Bitch!!!!!!!

The mullet, a short on the top and sides, longer in the back hair cut came about through popular media in the 1960’s and 70’s. Artist, such as David Bowie portrayed the style in his “Glam Rock” look, and Florence Henderson toned it down for the family in Brady Bunch. However, it wasn’t until the 1980’s where the style became generally known. Often it was ridiculed as a lowbrow and unappealing style. It stayed strong in certain social groups up until the mid-90’s. It has regained some popularity in 00’s, especially internationally, such as Spain, Mexico and Germany. Also, the movie Joe Dirt and one of my favorites, the futuristic rap crew from South Africa, Die Antwoord, kept the love strong. Sadly, there is one country that don’t get to enjoy the joy and laughter of the mullet anymore. That would be Iran, who took it to the extreme when the Islamic Regime decided to create “mens grooming outlines” in July 2010 which band the “mullet” look. All I have to say is God Bless America, and long live the mullet!

who’s your dryer??

I love a good dryer…. but i looooveeeeee a gooood dryerrrrrr….. thats right I am not taking about your normal blow dryer…no brush needed here….actually all you have to do is just sit and relax.

It’s actually sad that our generation completely fell out of sitting under a hair dryer? Are we in that much of a rush, that 20 minutes under a hair dryer is too long?  A hair dryer does wonders… it produces heat and activates products without creating damage like modern blow dryers can do…. you can activate color and conditioning products, you can also get the best blow out and curl you ever dreamed of, all along while you have time to read your favorite magazine….oh yeah when was the last time you got to do that??

check out the vintage portable hair dryer…….amazing

history………. repeat’s itself

Cosmetology is one of the oldest and most honorable of all professions.  Since the very dawn of time, human beings have attempted to beautify themselves and have regarded their hair designs as one of the marks of culture……..

                                                         ~ miriam cordwell & marion rudoy

                                                       Botticelli’s coif  (1500)


Sandro Botticelli’s coif, seen above, shows one of the first rituals of pattern making in the hair.  Hair design is said to predate all other forms of art.  The specific pattern also known as a braid has been popular ever since, especially in this past year, on the 2010 runways…

One of the simplest tools of all for styling…. the tail comb, a narrow pointed handle with a comb on top is definitely one of the most important. Its origin came about in the late 70’s, perfect for big 80’s hair. It is the supporter of one of the most influential hairstyles that still lives on strong today, the back comb, otherwise known as, teasing. A simple technique that consists of lifting a small section of hair straight up, putting the comb directly in the middle of the section and combing hair straight down towards the scalp. Repeating several times, and being a little aggressive with it definitely enhances the tease. Spraying with hairspray and putting the hair down and lightly comb back seals the look. This creates a perfect base for styling. So, if you want to go up with the look for something elegant or carry over the 2010, natural and full into 2011… it’s all possible. tease away!
