About the Author:

As Education Officer for Norfolk Museums Service Gail Durbin gives talks both to school children and to adults. Her teaching deals with the whole range of exhibits in the county's museums and she first became interested in hairdressing bygones when she was involved with an exhibition on 'Health and Beauty' and discovered that little had been written on this subject.

Review:

“Covers a topic not often explored: The history of wigs, hairdressing and men's shaving accoutrements....This fascinating book will be of particular interest to students of hairdressing, along with costume designers and properties departments for theatre and film.” ―Vintage Fashion Guild
