Every period in history has its classic hairstyles: the bob cut for Twenties elegance, the flip hairstyle for the Fifties and the long, centre-parted mane of the Seventies. If you need to create a period hairstyle for a film, stage production or fashion shoot, this book is a most trusted companion. Its coverage is broad: from ancient priestesses and Egyption queens, via Elizabethan courtiers, to the classic styles of all decades in the twentieth century. With clear instructions and close-up photography showing how to create more than a hundred vintage styles this is a welcome resource for the dressing room. 'There is a real wealth of information here - and it couldn't be clearer to read.'

Review quote

'There is a real wealth of information here - and it couldn't be clearer to read.' 'It isn't often that I get excited about training manuals especially when they deal with subjects of which I have absolutely no hands-on experience. But Period Hairstyles for Studio Stage and Screen and its companion volume Period Make-up, both by Kit Spencer and both new from Methuen Drama, are lovely, heavy ring-bound books with lots of outstandingly helpful pictures.' The Stage - Education Blog "I would thoroughly recommend these books to enthusiastic amateurs or young people who want to experiment before making headway into the industry." The Stage (June 2009)
