A Lady's Hairstyles Through the Ages

Such a beautiful video and such a clever artistic project. While the "looks" do not seem to be always historically authentic, that hardly matters. It feels that the project is more about our perception of the past rather than true historical facts. Not to mention that at any given time there are a variety of hairstyles and to show them all would require a lot more than 4 minutes.

What strikes me as interesting is that what this video excludes tells more about our society than what it shows. Many a worthy maid is conspicuous by her absence.
