100 years of Iran thorugh women’s hairstyles
100 years of beauty is an online series that trace the history of a country through women’s hairstyles and looks. This is the episode dedicated to Iran.
Let’s retrace one hundred years of Iranian history through women’s traditional hairstyles over the course of decades. Since the 10s of the Twentieth century up to today. It could seem absurd but the evolution (if we can say so) and the passing of time led to a regression of this country’s customs. The footage is the third of a series of episodes entitled 1oo years of beauty. The first two videos trace the American history through the hairstyles of a white and a black woman and they are available on the Youtube channel Cut Video.
