Written by Lauren Philippon and featuring contributions by everyone from Richard Avedon to Dita Von Deese, this beauty tome is a breeze through hair history, hopscotching continents and fashion magazine pages alike. Braids 101? It's in here, touching upon the Indian jata (dreadlocks), the Qing dynasty, and even Elizabeth Taylor's Cleopatra look. There's also a chapter on "Loose Hair" (Yoko Ono, Farrah Fawcett), a section on the mohawk (Die Antwoord, the Roman emperor Hadrian), and an entire part dedicated to "The Architecture of Short Hair."
But hey, don't just let us tell you about it. Click through the gallery to see all our favorite hair icons in action, and buy the book here!
