    • Much of it; I didn't know about the charcoal mix though or that loreal was the first company to use dihydrogen dioxide. A number of classic books written around then allude to prostitutes needing to dye their hair red or blonde though.

  • Love you Brad but this was a loooootttttt of Western history and no Eastern, “New World” or Islander hair color traditions, henna has been around forever! I would have expected to at least see that! But again, it was a fun video

  • So this is less about the history of hair color, and more about the history of hair lightening because henna has been used on the hair around the world since ancient times.

  • You actually left out a lot; some of the info is incorrect. Marilyn Monroe brought the super bleached blonde trend in the 50's and she was not a prostitute, prior to that, brunettes were considered most beautiful. Through the 50's onwards, Swedish/European women were starting to be the new beauty standard due to the war in Europe and commercial air travel. Colouring hair wasn't so much taboo, women just didn't want people to know they weren't actually natural blondes. You also left out the powdered wigs and ashy white hair trend of the 18th century. Around the 80's known as the punk era, was the first time people started using fashion colours, and multiple colours at the same time on their hair. The 80's also had the very dark roots look. The late 80's to early 90's the goth look with really dark/jet black hair/blue black became popular. You also left out Jennifer Anniston who was a major influence for the super highlighted front face framing highlight look. Also, dip dyed hair, and black on the bottom and blonde ontop skunk style look in the 2000s. And of course many others you left out.

  • I mean... considering how "L'Oreal" is pronounced and how "Aureole" is spelled... combined with how you pronounce words like "Aura", I'M PRETTY DAMN CERTAIN it sound very close to the "Oreal" in "L'Oreal" :D

  • I'm not a hair dyer, but I'm addicted to watching hair coloring videos. History of it is cool to learn. In the 60s, my mother had a stalker (woman) who just wanted to know who dyes her hair and what's the shade. The lady followed her from the bus stop to her job often. The lady refused to believe that she had natural red hair and thought it was the typical denial of the time.

Things I wouldn't understand or would normally find intimidating you talk about so well in such an approachable way (maybe that's just your personality??) I love it!

  • 5:24 "I heard that prostitutes had to color their hair blonde to signify what their job was." I always wanted to know why people called blondes "eazy" or "bembo's". I guess there's a history behind it. Blonde is such a nice hair color though. 😊

  • oooffff-this is pretty poorly researched eeek. "Prostitutes" (I believe the term you were looking for is sex workers) had to color their hair blonde so other women didn't do that? Ummmmm lol no. Where did you hear that? Ever heard of Marilyn Monroe? She was NOT a natural blonde. I think what you are talking about is sex workers being required to have yellow hair in the Roman Empire (ie: 300 BC not the 1950s). This video is ROUGH!

  • Historian here (REAL LIFE!!), thank you for this. One portion of history I love to look through is the social aspect. Women in Africa use clay mud on their hair so they can make the hair look red, but it also protects it from the sun!! Love spending time on women and their aesthetics!! You now have me deep in research databases looking for info on the Greek form of hair lighting!! You made all us historians proud!! Also, YOU CITED 👏🏼!! I’m shooooooketh!! PS: we still use peroxide to lighten the hair. My mom taught me the trick when I was 14!

  • Hello Brad, Ombre hair color started becoming really popular after the 2008 because the the financial crisis. Women could not go to the salon as often to get their color done, so Ombre was the best option because you only had to go get it done 3-4 times a year. That is why it was mainstream by 2013. So it's interesting to see how having disposable income to do your hair professionally affects a person's life. You don't have to color your hair, you want to color your hair. I loved your video, I would like to request that you do a couple more focusing on each era and maybe collaborating with a historian here on NOworld.

Would say in current time while it's in style we gonna look back on this the same way we look back at the early 2000s like what were we thinking 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 we brought back the mullet which not gunna lie looks good on some people and we got hot roots on purpose this is truly a moment in time

  • I put half a bottle of Sun-In in my hair when I was 15, it turned from a medium brown to blonde. That was a LONG time ago! It looked great (or so I thought at the time), but then my hair really started to fall out, so I never used it again. Could it be that my hair was also permed? Now I only get foil highlights at the salon. Live and learn. Hey, I love that highlights began in ancient Greece, I'm now even more proud of my heritage!

  • 1994 or 95 I did the chunky front highlights from drawing inspo from the smashing pumpkins guitarist. After that I let my friend in the cheapest beauty school do a wtf bleach job, white roots then yellow to orange to red to the ends. Ya strangely it looked good. The teacher took a picture because she said “I know I’ll never see this again in my life” and “I have to have a picture or else no one would ever believe me”. My hair was short but not pixie. Then when my roots grew out a tiny bit I went pixie and that also looked fucking amazing. I had this surfer look going and I could never recreate it again because the bleach line grew out straight which before my hair grew out blended and no harsh line. Whatever my friend did back in hair school produced two impossible to recreate looks. So after that it went pixie box dye black for years. My stylist now whom I’ve had since she was 19, she dropped out of college getting a biochemistry degree that she started when she was 16 because she graduated high school early; who also went to the same cheap beauty college but also was self taught that had a grip on color you know chemistry being her thing...also going to hair shows anyways she’s the shit and got the years black out of my hair in two appointments with the in between looking good enough to go out with my friends and replaced that with multifaceted ruby color that’s down to my ass. Oh and my red doesn’t fade. :) xoxo Brad! P.S. Well known tip (I don’t know if she started it or not) is using sweet’n’low sugar (pink packet) to neutralize the burn from dye on the scalp.

  • I use a light box color on my brown hair, it turns it a strawberry blondish, then I wet my hair and sit in the sun. I keep wetting it and let the sun do the rest. It turns out a golden blonde. I get asked ALL the time who does my hair and I have to be honest and Loreal and the Sun. Keeping your hair wet is the key at first then as the summer goes on it will get lighter and lighter. Make sure you use good products in your hair because the sun will damage it, but worth the color I get and love. ( I also have long hair so I use 4 boxes of color, I blend a light blond with medium blond to get the strawberry base color.)
