Hair Glossary

Glossary of Hair Words & Terms

No. of terms: 420

Description: This glossary, found on the ukhairdressers.com website, puts an end to bad hair days. Get informed about terms and treatments related to hair and hair design. And for all my fellow girls, check out the beautiful style gallery (they say you may choose from over 4700 hairstyles!)

Example term: BOB
The Bob was the classic look of the 50s and 60s; the style was short and straight but blow-dried and curled under. At it’s worst the style could make you look like a mushroom, but at best with the curl accentuating your cheekbones it created an incredibly sexy look. Bob has become a description of the hair length from ear-length to the shoulder. Now you can get straight bobs, or the ends flicked out or in.

Note: The Bob – my favorite for good and for bad. Never gonna change it!
