So, you know, there are a lot of stuff coming about Short Harry Styles (oh sorry, I misspelled it) hairstyles. So, this marks the beginning. Let’s get into it. So, I’ll start with:



What is Hair actually?



Well, chemically, hair is 45% carbon, 28% oxygen, 15% nitrogen, 7% hydrogen, and 5% sulphur. And Biologically, 95% Keratin and helicoidal protein.

Hair keratin is hard, compact, and strong. Each hair shaft is made up of two or three layers: the cuticle, the cortex, and sometimes the medulla.

The cuticle is the outermost layer. Made of flattened cells that overlap like the tiles on a terra-cotta roof, the cuticle protects the inside of the hair shaft from damage.

Well, that’s enough for science. Now, time for some fun facts about hair.

History of Hairstyles

The oldest known depiction of hairstyling is hair braiding which dates back about 30,000 years. In history, women’s hair was often elaborately and carefully dressed in special ways.

From the time of the Roman Empire until the Middle Ages, most women grew their hair as Long as it would naturally grow. Between the late 15th century and the 16th century, a very high hairline on the forehead was considered attractive.

Around the same period, European men often wore their hair cropped no longer than shoulder-length. In the early 17th century, male hairstyles grew longer, with waves or curls being considered desirable.

The male wig was pioneered by King Louis XIII ofFrance (1601–1643) in 1624. Perukes or periwigs for men were introduced into the English-speaking world with other French styles in 1660. Late 17th-century wigs were very long and wavy, but became shorter in the mid-18th century, by which time they were normally white.

Short hair for fashionable men was a product of the Neoclassical Movement. In the early 19th century the male beard, and also mustaches and sideburns, made a strong reappearance.

From the 16th to the 19th century, European women’s hair became more visible while their hair coverings grew smaller. In the middle of the 18th century, the pouf style developed. During the First World War, women around the world started to shift to shorter hairstyles that were easier to manage.

In the early 1950s, women’s hair was generally curled and worn in a variety of styles and lengths. In the 1960s, many women began to wear their hair in short modern cuts such as the pixie cut, while in the 1970s, hair tended to be longer and looser.

In both the 1960s and 1970s many men and women wore their hair very long and straight. In the 1980s, women pulled back their hair with scrunchies. During the 1980s, punk hairstyles were adopted by many people.

During the 15th and 16th centuries, European men wore their hair cropped no longer than shoulder-length, with very fashionable men wearing bangs or fringes.

In Italy it was common for men to dye their hair. In the early 17th century male hairstyles grew longer, with waves or curls being considered desirable in upper-class European men.

The male wig was supposedly pioneered by King Louis XIII of France (1601–1643) in 1624 when he had prematurely begun to bald.

This fashion was largely promoted by his son and successor Louis XIV of France (1638–1715) that contributed to its spread in European and European-influenced countries. The beard had been in a long decline and now disappeared among the upper classes.

Perukes or periwigs for men were introduced into the English-speaking world with other French styles when Charles II was restored to the throne in 1660, following a lengthy exile in France.

These wigs were shoulder-length or longer, imitating the long hair that had become fashionable among men since the 1620s. Their use soon became popular in the English court.

The London diarist Samuel Pepys recorded the day in 1665 that a barber had shaved his head and that he tried on his new periwig for the first time, but in a year of plague he was uneasy about wearing it

Late 17th-century wigs were very long and wavy (see George I below), but became shorter in the mid-18th century, by which time they were normally white (George II). A very common style had a single stiff curl running round the head at the end of the hair.

By the late 18th century the natural hair was often powdered to achieve the impression of a short wig, tied into a small tail or “queue” behind (George III)

Short hair for fashionable men was a product of the Neoclassical movement. Classically inspired male hair styles included the Bedford Crop, arguably the precursor of most plain modern male styles, which was invented by the radical politician Francis Russell, 5th Duke of Bedford as a protest against a tax on hair powder; he encouraged his friends to adopt it by betting them they would not.

Another influential style (or group of styles) was named by the French “à la Titus” after Titus Junius Brutus (not in fact the Roman Emperor Titus as often assumed), with hair short and layered but somewhat piled up on the crown, often with restrained quiffs or locks hanging down; variants are familiar from the hair of both Napoleon and George IV.

The style was supposed to have been introduced by the actor François-Joseph Talma, who upstaged his wigged co-actors when appearing in productions of works such as Voltaire’s Brutus (about Lucius Junius Brutus, who orders the execution of his son Titus).

In 1799, a Parisian fashion magazine reported that even bald men were adopting Titus wigs, and the style was also worn by women, the Journal de Paris reporting in 1802 that “more than half of elegant women were wearing their hair or wig à la Titus.”

I know we’re talking about history of hairstyles but beards must be mentioned. So, In the early 19th century the male beard, and also moustaches and sideburns, made a strong reappearance, associated with the Romantic movement, and all remained very common until the 1890s.

After which younger men ceased to wear them, with World War I, when the majority of men in many countries saw military service, finally despatching the full beard except for older men retaining the styles of their youth, and those affecting a Bohemian look. The short military-style moustache remained popular.

Haircare



A Good Haircare is quite hard to find these days. Haircare is quite hard to find these days. I personally haven’t seen many people around who keep a good care of not only their skin and physique but also of their hair to which they later say, “Okay, I need a hair treatment, my hair has already begun to get rough and damaged.”

Trust me, Prevention is ‘much’ better than the cure. We must apply some nice and tidy haircare tips that usually our mothers and fathers (mostly mothers) used to give us back when we were 4,5,6 or maybe 10.

You know, if we follow some good hair habits we can naturally have great, nourished hair without any hair treatments which in this era is hard to find.

So, these are some tips for nourished, healthy hair,

• Do not Shampoo more than twice a week. It will leave your hair damaged to the core. It’s like washing the same clothes everyday which in that scenario leaves them fainted and hardened, damaged. Same goes with our hair. It removes natural oils from the scalp if washed everyday with shampoo.

Yes you can wash your hair every day but just not with shampoo. Do shampoo it at least once a week so that, they can stay clean. You know, look at how clothes are treated wash your hair according to how you wash your clothes.

Well, if you don’t wash them once a week then, don’t treat your hair like your clothes. So, remember at least once a week and maximum twice a week.

• Comb your hair twice a day to reduce hair damage. It really does help our hair to grow and nourish properly. That is why most girls have smooth and straight hair. It’s because they comb their hair. They really comb as they know the efforts from a very long time.

I know you’re having short hair and you’ll be like, I don’t really need to comb. ‘Cause, they’re already short. So, I would say yes buddy, if your hair is already too short like you have a buzz cut, so combing wouldn’t work so, instead of this you gotta apply the next tip and that Is to massage your scalp.


• Massage your scalp once in two days with any natural hair oil whether be mustard oil, olive oil, castor oil, or Coconut oil and leave it on your scalp overnight. (To protect your pillow from dirty oil stains, just cover your pillow with another cloth).

Just position your fingers like the claws of a tiger and then dip them in any hair oil, and then start massaging the whole scalp. Scalp massage activates more blood circulation over your scalp which helps them to nourish and grow faster and better than without massaging.

• Dry your hair naturally. You don’t really need those hair dryers or blow dryers or whatever people name it. You know, you gotta protect your hair from heat damage. Yes, straighteners and hair dryers usually, damage the hair, making them less nourished and leaving them dry which later causes, split ends, hair fall and many other hair problems.

Some people also think that what kind of a hair care does short hair require. It’s totally wrong. Short hair do need hair care but a lot less as compared to medium and longer lengths but as I said, It requires proper Hair Care.

Okay, these were some basic tips for it. For more: you can head to this link: 11 great haircare tips.
