The Hair and Head was originally published in the early 1930s, but now is available for a new generation of those wishing to create classic styles.

Profusely illustrated, the contents include how to cut hair and how to finger wave as well as illustrations of completed hairstyles. The beginning of the e-book is explaination and line drawings of techniques. The majority of the e-book is composed of black and white illustrations of 1930s hairstyles for inspiration with one large illustration per page.

This e-book was originally intended for those who were students of hairstyling but can provide inspiration for those who love vintage style as well as professionals seeking period sources. I would recommend at least an intermediate knowledge of hairstyling to attempt these styles if you're not a hairstylist or student of hairstyling.

This e-book is in PDF format and is 67 pages in length. It is 18.2MB in size so may take a while to download.
