Hairstyles are an indication of the long history of man's status as a
modern creature. Many of the problems and themes of today were already
in existence thousands of years ago, and have not changed. The images
of men and women from the recent past, show that they are not so
different from ourselves. Women desired ornate hairstyles which
made statements about their status and authority, while the common women
found the means, without the assistance of beauty attendants, to create
hairstyles that could be attractive. The young debutante, the young
daughter of the lord or merchant, still had to attend parties where she
would be displayed to potential suiters. Seen from a distance, her
hairstyle was as important as her gown. She became a favorite to
represent in the art of the time.
