It is used for making tennis balls and paintbrushes, it can be an expression of our identities—and it can convict criminals. Most people don't think much about the stuff on their head, but hair has played a crucial role in in fashion, the arts, forensics, and industry. From Renaissance diaries to the classic hair-hanging circus act (and a completely bald beauty queen), Kurt Stenn weaves a history of hair through intriguing examples. Along with interviewing wig makers and barbers, Stenn travels to fur merchant associations, sheep farms, medical clinics, and patient support groups to explore the remarkable impact that hair has on our lives.
