The art and profession of hair styling goes back thousands of years. Ancient art depicts someone styling another persons hair and the ancient Greeks had hairdressers style their hair. In Africa, hairdressers had a high standing in their community. They were encouraged many to develop their skills, and close relationships were built between hairdressers and their clients.
Hours would be spent washing, combing, oiling, styling and ornamenting their both men and woman’s hair. Their special combs and tools would be handed down to their heir. This speaks to how prized their hairdressers and hairdressing equipment was. Even the ancient Egyptian’s had hairdressers with their own special equipment and styling products.
However, the first time the word “hairdresser” was used was in the 1600’s in Europe. The wealthy Europeans would have personal hairdressers that would spend hours on intricate and elaborate hairstyles. French hairdressers became famous for their groundbreaking hairstyles and set trends all over the world for new hairstyles.
This history of stylists continued into the 20th century when salons were popularized and many modernized styling devices such as hair dryers were invented. Now stylists were available to anyone. They were not only for the wealthy and elite, anyone had the access to a professional hairstyle. In the 1950’s for example, woman began to visit the salon weekly for set curls and style. The popularity of having a professional styling service still continues today.
