Through pages of history, hairstyles have been known as an essential ingredient to personal grooming and fashion. And more often than not, hairstyles have had cultural association than just trending fashion. In fact, in ways, more than one, these beautiful trends have actually helped more historians to tell if a piece of art belonged to a certain era.

The ancient Greek were very fond of their hair. It was considered a sign of strength and prestige, especially among men. A person who ran away from the battlefield was made to cut their hair short as a sign of cowardice. As for women, they used to decorate it with little jewelry. The movie Sparta gives you if not perfect; an almost realistic sneak peek into the rich ancient Greek fashion sense.

Not too far away from Greece, back in ancient Rome, women, as much as they do today, used their unique hairstyles to represent their individuality. What might have been considered beautiful one year, might have been outdated the next. Tousled but curly hair for men, high buns, tight braids in firm coils, extravagant volume and wild bangs were the only tip of the fashion iceberg.

The tradition that barred cutting of hair, in China, only led to really long hair tied in unique and detailed fashion. Loose buns with some untied hair at the back, hair arranged in loops, hanging ornaments to adorn their hair are only some honorable mentions.

In a world, connected by such fashion diversity, or not connected at all, in past years, it is only understandable, now with internet and global unity, fashion trends come in like a raging river building up and flooding all around it, and then finally collapsing in a giant ocean of fashion, where anybody and everybody gets to adore, pick and wear it themselves.
