Introduction

Throughout history haircuts have always been a way to show power, style and social positions or religious beliefs. I think most of us will think about Hitler, with his mustache and haircut, but we have a lot more historic examples like the Beatles or Bob Marley.

Also, haircuts were (and are) a distinctive fashion trend for both men and women. Usually men's hair is shorter and women's is longer but the 1920s and 1960s were decades defined by women social and cultural rebellion and they tried to show their style through short and menlish haircuts.

First known hairstyles

The oldest known reproduction of hair braiding lies back about 30,000 years: the Venus of Willendorf, a female figurine from the Paleolithic, estimated to have been made between about 28,000 and 25,000 BCE. The Venus of Brassempouy counts about 25,000 years old and indisputably shows hairstyling.

Going Bald

It is not uncommon to see men lose hair fast at a young age. It may cause stress and lead to think how to remedy the situation. Some choose to have a completely bald head, shaving it, but others try to overcome the problem with different hairstyles or even wearing wigs. Historically, the male wig was pioneered by King Louis XIII of France (1601–1643) in 1624 when he had prematurely begun to bald.

Last time I cut my 4yo's hair, he told me he wanted it cut like his uncles. So I cut it like that, and had him look in the mirror.

He was disappointed, because I had not shaved the top of his head shiny. LOL The things kids pick up on.

You should have seen my son some years ago when his father made a mistake and close shaved a part of his head. He cried and didn't want to go to school. Now we laugh about it :)
