Alexander Yakovlev's comment, June 2, 9:36 AM
This article seems controversial to me. Gasimova states how she wants to look natural and that there are nothing wrong with women hairs, yet she wears make up, uses deodorant, and does other things that is unnatural in nature. I hate how people choose to do only one part of their statements. It is the same way when women wants an equal rights, yet they don’t want to go work at the cement manufactory as men do. All this arguments are unfair. She doesn’t want to shave that’s her business, but I think that every country has their own standards for shaving. As it mentioned, she is Turkish, so in Turkey it’s probably fine for women not to shave, but she probably forgot that she is not in turkey and there are different standards in different countries. IF you don’t like it, go back to Turkey nothing holds you there.

Contrary to most historical accounts, Madame C.J. Walker did not invent the pressing comb. Per her own words, Madame Walker started the “hair-growing” business, borne out her desire to remedy her own hair loss.

In 1910 Madame C.J. Walker moved her ever expanding “Special Correspondence Course” business, founded on her System of Beauty Culture, to

'Hairdo archaeologist' solves old mystery

'Hairdo archaeologist' solves old mystery | Herstory | Scoop.it

Janet Stephens earns a living trimming, straightening and dyeing the hair of customers seeking the latest look.

But the stylist from the US city of Baltimore is more interested in the hairdos of the past.

Stephens is a hairstyle archaeologist who specialises in recreating how women in ancient Rome and Greece wore their hair.

She spoke to the BBC about a museum visit that marked the start of a long journey of discovery on which she solved a historical mystery and had her work published in an academic journal.

Produced by the BBC's Peter Murtaugh

Getting Bangs Will Change Your Life, Apparently

Getting Bangs Will Change Your Life, Apparently | Herstory | Scoop.it
The most intense source of my hair anxiety, though, is whether or not to get bangs. Girls with fringe seem to always be walkin' on sunshine, seem to just know how to wear those weird scarves that are really just a loop of fabric, and seem to never have to worry about visible forehead pimples. I guess, in my head, girls with bangs conflate into the unofficial spokeswoman of the power of the hair style, Zooey Deschanel.

 

Check out this infomercial parody for bangs on YouTube, starring funny ladies and BUST contributors Giulia Rozzi and Brandy Barber. The characters' LIVES ARE CHANGED by their new bangs.
