Editorial Reviews

Review

“A startlingly fresh way to cut through a swath of history. . . . Alongside famous shots of Kate and Naomi, there are gems to rediscover, like an Avedon of Jean Shrimpton, her asymmetrical hair magically aloft.” (Vogue)

“A collection of hair porn unlike anything you’ve seen on Pinterest.” (Allure)

“Entire selections dedicated to the most stunning examples of braids, curls, wigs, and chignons from fashion history fill the pages, with essays about memorable dos sprinkled throughout.” (New York Magazine)

“[A] stunning tour de hair.” (Fast Co.Design)

“A book that celebrates the art and craft of hair styling with a collection of stunning photographs and commentary.” (Modern Salon)

“One of the best surprises of the gift giving season.” (New York Journal of Books)

“The ultimate guide to fantasy tresses.” (New York Daily News)

“A dazzling exploration of styles from fashion history and film . . . we’re not sure 320 pages will be enough space to satisfy our hunger for all the things Philippon wants to show us.” (Refinery29)

“What comes across strongest in the expansive new tome . . . is [Philippon’s] enthusiasm.” (Style.com)

“Philippon celebrates the sculptural element of the female crowning glory with this fun perhaps even inspiring exploration of the history of hair. Fashionistas and hairstylists alike will flock to this book.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Examines key hair trends through history with chapters on Braids, Curls, Chignons, Wigs, etc., and celebrates the unmitigated artistry of each category through Laurent’s informed and appreciative perspective.” (Behind the Chair on Paper)

“A modern history on the art of hair with photographs by Herb Ritts, Helmut Newton, Robert Mapplethorpe, David LaChapelle and Nan Goldin. Need we say more?” (Harper's Bazaar)

Book description implies that this in an illustrated HISTORY of hair styles.(As in over the centuries). Instead it is a very attractive glossy book primarily photographs from the 20th Century-Hollywood films stars,and late 20th C "designer haircuts" of various celebrities enjoying their 15 minutes of fame.

So as a "pretty picture book" it succeeds,but as an overview of womens hairstyles over the ages it is off very limited use due to it's obsession with the 1960-2010 period.

Hair : Fashion And Fantasy examines the history and culture of hair fashion, delving into styles like braids, curls, chignons, short crops, each replete with visual references from both archival imagery and more contemporary sources – the result is a book that is both educational and inspiring.

A great resource for visual references on hair styles, plus lessons on the history and culture of hair fashion in the write-ups. Recommended !
