Hair by John Barrett


Much more than simply an adornment, a hairstyle evokes a moment in time and communicates an individual s concept of personal identity. Marilyn Monroe radiates Hollywood glamour, Farah Fawcett s tousled waves vividly call to mind the decadent disco era, the Beatles mop-tops embody rock-and-roll rebelliousness, Grace Jones flattop symbolizes her pioneering androgyny. From Roaring Twenties bobs to punk mohawks, 18th-century perruques to dreadlocks and afros, in The Big Book of Hair, Assouline and renowned stylist John Barrett curate a portfolio of the most symbolic images of iconic hairstyles that define our cultural world."
