19th century hairstyles
In the 19th century, hairstyles were the outward expression of people’s thoughts. In the first half of the century, the literary movement, which later would become a way of thinking, was the Romanticism.
The hair, in the first half of the century was worn as disordered, dry, natural, with no artificial products, with no ostentation, an expression of the sense of individual freedom and a suggestion of “not-belonging” to anything previously uniformed. Men wore this kind of “open-mind” hairstyle, and beards and mustaches were rarely seen.
