Greeks hairstyles are a reflection of a society that was one of the most
advanced ever. Ornate hairstyles were a natural for a culture that was
technologically advanced. As well, they were a nation of city-states
that competed with one another, and were successful conquerors. This
gave them the luxury of slaves and servants, which the upper class
Greek woman required in order to maintain an appropriate hairstyle that
matched her station in life. The Greek women, from statues, coins, and
other images, were much more feminine in appearance than their Roman
counterparts, indicating a greater need to present themselves as a
distinct component of a wealthy and advanced society.
