History of Hairstyle Appreciation Day

Have you ever thought about how important your hair is and how it grows? Haircutting has been common since the middle ages. In those ages, the style of someone’s hair was important because it determined status, social class, racial identification, religious beliefs, etc. For example, in Europe men preferred long hair, as a distinguishing feature of free men, while short hair was a sign of servitude and peasantry. Moreover, in Viking society, women with high status wore their hair long. On the other hand, hardworking women tied their hair back to keep it out of their way while they performed tasks.

Nowadays, there are almost as many hairstyles as there are people in the world. If you want, you can change your hair color. You can also turn your straight hair into curly hair. There are an almost infinite number of things you can do with your hair. The use of hair extensions and wigs has become very popular.

Hairstylists are trained and have experience with a variety of textures, styles, and colors. Stylists have to stay up to date with the current trend in fashion and hairstyling, to keep customers happy and beautiful. They also have to know how to keep their own hair healthy and beautiful.
