This exhibition looks like it’ll be great! Be sure to check it out if you’re going to be close to Barnsley February 17 – April 7 2018. From Creative Boom:

Through a unique collaboration between curator, renowned hair-stylist Andrew Barton and leading fashion research consultant Donna Bevan, the exhibition explores the key hair-styles and technological innovations from the mid-1940s to present day.

Charting the cultural and economic shifts which influenced now iconic hairstyles, archival photography, advertising graphics, ephemera and historical objects are taken from the archives and collections of L’Oréal, Unilever (TIGI, Toni & Guy, TRESemmé, VO5 and Brylcreem), Coty (Wella), Sassoon, Dome Hair Products, Lambeth Archives, Museumand: The National Caribbean Heritage Museum and Wakefield Museums.

From the changing nature of the salon in post-war Britain to the rise of the celebrity hairdresser in the early 1960s and the impact of Black Pride on the style choices of women across the globe, a comprehensive hair history is offered to visitors, making it a must-see for barnet-loving babes.
