Michael Warner's website The Hair Archives is full of fun and interesting articles and pictures of popular hairstyles of the past. He gives us some history of hairdressing, hair humor and you can even "Test Your Hair I.Q.".
In his archives section he has pictures and some instructions on women's hairstyles from the 20's- 70's. He also sells vintage combs, hair pins and hairstyle magazines on his site.
One of my favorite things is an article called "The Hairdresser's Daughter". It was written by a young woman named Clara Augusta back in 1892. Her father owned the most popular hair salon in town. She tells of how she lost her suitors and her hair because of her dad's hairstyling experiments on her.
