Hair on the human head appears to grow effortlessly, yet so much time is spent thinking about it, so much skill and money involved in dressing it and such value placed on its very existence that not only is it a marker of personality but probably the most marketable commodity we each possess – although few of us actually sell our own or indeed buy the locks of others. There are images in this collection of postcards that illustrate such acts, but it is mostly a random selection of the fashions for treating the hair upon heads and faces across the world; and the places where the arts of modelling it are practised.
