In what ways have new technologies influenced hairrelated practices and beliefs? Is hair just about fashion or does it express social spiritual and cultural meanings? In a work that spans nearly 3000 years these ambitious questions are addressed by 60 experts each contributing their overview of a theme applied to a period in history.
