Hair is history

The appearance of people regardless of their origin, speaks for itself, from the costumes to the way of wearing the hair express a particular language, if we look around and focus on how people wear their hair, we could deepen even more than what It simply looks.

Long hair, for example, has been represented in different cultures and history has shown it for a long time, having long hair is a sign that is cling to the identity, but what does identity have to do with hair length?

Before answering the question, it is important to highlight the events and characters that have shown the importance of long hair. In religion for example, Sanson’s long hair keeps his great strength, in Greek mythology: Zeus, Venus and Apollo also defined his appearance with large extensions of hair, like the Indians or Rastafari or SIKH and many other cultural groups that avoid cutting hair alluding to their roots, their ancestors, the symbolism in their culture, long hair is a life to be told in each strand.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Long hair has a great bond with self-image because that image is part of the construction of identity and that identity acts as a reflection of traditions, riches, beliefs, power, to make a statement, it is a reflection of protection, of remembrance, it is a memory and it is history… which define us as individuals but at the same time includes us in society.
