The hairnet, although today thought of as a cafeteria mom’s must-have, has a very significant ‘hair story’ in women’s history. During World War Two in the 1940s, women joined the workforce in droves, taking over jobs traditionally done by men. By mid-1943, nearly 90 per cent of single women and 80 per cent of married women were employed in critical work for the war effort. Of course the elaborate long hairstyles of the time proved hazardous on the job.
When planning our education - whether it be digital, online or show/classes - and when creating mood boards for editorial shoots, it’s always an inspiration to look at what happens on the runways.

2014 - it is the beginning of a new year and as the holidays come to a close, there are many newly engaged brides-to-be that will start the process of wedding planning. I have been thinking about my amazing industry and what makes for a fabulous bridal hairstyle. Most of my brides have an idea of what they want on the big day. They often think their hair "won't do this style or that look", but remember, as hair stylists, we create magic!
