Just for the Style of It (Healthy Hair?)

Although this exhibit is long over, its humor remains on the internet. “Preposterous Headdresses and Feathered Ladies: Hair, Wigs, Barbers, and Hairdressers” was held at Yale University’s Lewis Walpole Library in 2003. It featured prints focused on hair and wigs and the hairdressers and barbers who created and tended them. Visit the website at http://www.library.yale.edu/walpole/programs/hair.html.

The Lewis Walpole Library is a research library for eighteenth-century British studies. Its collections include eighteenth-century British books, manuscripts, prints, drawings, and paintings, as well as important examples of the decorative arts. Housed in several historic structures as well as a 2007 addition in Farmington, Connecticut, the Library is open to researchers by appointment.
