Dr Seán Williams On Hairdressing & Its Cultural History From The 18th Century Onwards

December 2, 2019

[142] We rarely stop to think about where traditions and professions come from. Be that as it may, history can help us discover how some human experiences aren't always so foreign to those lived centuries ago.

In history, the hairdresser is an artistic and self-made character. Featuring Dr Seán Williams, lecturer in German and European Cultural History at the University of Sheffield, this week's conversation connects the past and its legacy to the present, and celebrates hairdressing and its cultural history from the 18th century onwards.
