Abstract:

This comprehensive reference work is packed with hairdressing and wigmaking terms. Details of different kinds of wigs, beards, moustaches and hairstyles and also the implements and processes of hairdressing, with their history, descriptions and meanings from all periods are drawn from both the author's experience as a practising hairdresser and wigmaker and original manuscripts and printed sources. The author lists and describes not only the literary, vernacular and technical words of the twentieth century, but also archaic, dialectal and obsolete words with their local uses and specialised meanings which are not readily available elsewhere. With over 1130 illustrations from contemporary works, this dictionary will provide accurate source material for those studying costume history and fashion, for artists, designers, collectors and the many people involved in the world of theatre and cinema, as well as for the professional hairdresser.
