Language: English

No. of terms: close to 200

Description: The hair glossary found on is a compilation of a wide variety of sources ranging from ordinary dictionaries to beauty guides. With close to 200 definitions this is quite a thorough reference work of words related to hair and hair beauty. Special attention has been paid in this glossary of hair terms to the ingredients that are potential irritants. Ingredients are marked as follows: “If any of the sources noted a particular ingredient as a potential irritant, an asterisk (*) has been placed by the ingredient to help those with sensitive skin easily identify the chemical or extract. It has been my observation that many ingredients listed as potential irritants are only irritating to extremely sensitive skin or those with an allergy to the offending ingredient. If it is a common irritant, two asterisks (**) are placed next to its name. If an ingredient is known for its gentleness, a carat (^) has been placed next to its name.”

Example term: Chamomile ^
Used in many products for blonde hair to enhance color. Also used in a variety of cosmetics as an emollient. Anti-inflammatory, soothing agent for tender skin; also provides antioxidation.

Hair Glossary

Glossary of Hair Words & Terms

No. of terms: 420

Description: This glossary, found on the 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!
