Cool History

Watched I Tried 500 Years of Hairstyles

Bookmarked I tried 500 years of Haircuts by Morgan Donner (

I’ve wanted try a bunch of these styles for so long, but always had the ‘wrong’ hair length! So I fixed that, one style at a time.

Time Stamps:

38:09 2000s

Very cool to see how hairstyles progressed in European / American history! Slow to change much at the start but sped up as we reached modern times. A lot of the styles look really cute on her even if they looked fussy and uptight in the reference paintings.
