The Hair Historian is an Instagram account combining my main interests of hair, art and history. As well as providing inspiration, the account also provides a platform for me to share my knowledge of the history of the hairdressing industry and the trends, techniques and people that have established this multi-billion-pound industry.

The Hair Historian has been featured on the BBC and Australia’s Channel 7 Sunrise, and in publications including Time, Dazed, Refinery 29, Stylist, InStyleThe CutELLE US, ELLE Italia, AnOther, MashableUnilad, The Metro and on the Art UK podcast. I’ve also been an expert guest on BBC local radio up and down the country, BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour, You and Yours and even popular podcast Blink 155, analysing the hairstyles of pop punk legends, Blink 182.
