Forensic scientists always love to find a piece of hair at the scene of the crime. This is because you can tell so much about the person from just a single piece of hair in forensics.
Hairstylists literally use their own language sometimes. There is so much hair terminology and phrases that they use on a daily basis, that might mean nothing to non-cosmetologists.
Do you ever wonder what some of these common phrases that hairstylists use mean? Well, if you said “yes,” then you’re in luck!
I’ve compiled a list of all the hair language I could think of, and I’d like to call it the “Dictionary of Hair Terminology.”
I plan to keep this page updated when I think of new terms and/or when new terminology comes into play, so make sure you save it.
Part of being a hairstylist is to inform people about their hair needs.
It’s common for people to look for your expert opinions about their diverse questions about hair. Sometimes you will get asked some pretty crazy questions about hair.
On the other hand, there are some pretty common questions that you will be asked often.
Did you know that a single strand of hair can hold up to 100 grams, which is just short of a quarter pound. In other words, a whole head of hair can hold up to two tons, the equivalent of two elephants. It should be no surprise that the circus has discovered a way to turn this into an impressive aerial act called “hair hanging”.
