9780713442083: An Illustrated Dictionary of Hairdressing and Wigmaking

This reference work is packed with hairdressing and wigmaking terms. Details of different kinds of wigs, beards, moustaches and hairstyles and also the implements and processes of hairdressing, with their history, descriptions and meanings from all periods are drawn from both the author's experience as a practising hairdresser and wigmaker and original manusripts and printed sources. The author lists and describes not only the literary, vernacular and technical craft words of the 20th century, but also archaic, dialectical and obsolete words with their local uses and specialized meanings which are not readily available elsewhere. This dictionary will provide source material for those studying costume history and fashion, for artists, designers, collectors and the many people involved in the world of theatre and cinema, as well as for the professional hairdresser.
