Decorative Arts Center of Ohio, in Lancaster, Ohio | Dr. Anne Bissonnette, Curator Split between nature, culture and sculpture, hair is a multifaceted topic and a medium of expression that is often overlooked. It can speak loudly and it did when, at the end of the 18th century, democratic ideals caused major social and political schisms that literally changed the face of fashion. By the 1790s, wigs and towering hairdos were going out of favor and new styles rooted in classicism ushered in an era of increased individuality.
