Hair Today
By:, Categories: Words & Images, 1 comment


They say that the average woman gets through around 30 hairstyles in a lifetime, with some changing their look entirely every 15 months. And through my lifetime, I’ve witnessed some iconic hairdos…from the meringue-like confections of Raymond ‘Teasy Weasy’ via the geometric ‘bob’ cuts of Vidal Sassoon. Yes, those were the ‘big hair’ heyday of bouffants, beehives and bobs.


Today, apparently young women are revisiting hair fashions of that earlier generation – big hair and blowdrying are back in demand, whilst many young men sport Edwardian ‘peaky blinder’ short back and sides. And specialising in those ‘blowbacks’ to our past is PinUps, the Glasgow West End vintage hair and makeup salon just off bohemian Byres Road. 


Me? Now, which hair clinic did Elton John go to again?
