This tandem of amusing, provocative books -- the perfect companions to Hats and Shoes -- takes a look at the whys and wherefores of two immediately identifiable elements of personal style.Be they horn-rims or Ray-Bans, glasses are undervalued accessories to fashion. This book explores the myriad ways in which glasses have defined image: from the charming, boy-next-door Buddy Holly look to Elton John's whimsical creations that evolved along with his stage personas. And, let's face it -- nothing makes us feel more like movie stars than our sunglasses.Our hair is no less an indication of who we want to be. Whether a beehive or a buzz-cut, Mohawk or French twist, dreadlocks or Dutch boy, a hairdo -- good or bad -- can always get a conversation started. Generations of fathers have battled with their sons over hair length, while their mothers, daughters, and sisters struggled with curlers, dryers, irons, perm rods, dyes, and other tools of beauty.Both Glasses and Hairdos pair archival photographs with engaging literary excerpts and quotations, tracing the fascinating history of these universal fundamentals of fashion.
