History of Medium Hairstyle
Medium hair styles are the one's that can be worn on an every day basis. Medium length hair is a style that the maximum number of people is endowed with.
The page-boy style - a sleek medium style look with turned-in ends was first popularized by Hollywood film star Greta Garbo and many variations on this theme are popular today.
During the early 30s women who had previously welcomed the short crop had tired of its uniformity. They wanted something different but not a reversal to the long dressed styles of their ancestors.
Marcel waving was still popular but it was the advent of the perm that made mid-length hair a fashionable proposition. Charles Nessler was the man who invented a fearsome looking machine that put curls into hair.
After the First World War a new permanent wave method was found which was much simpler than Mr Nessler's huge machine. It was a chemical process that literally baked the curls into place. Women now demanded curly, tousled heads rather than small neat silhouettes.
Modern perms and techniques are a far different from the first products and machines which were often used with disastrous results. The cosmetic discovery, of pH balance led to the marketing of sophisticated perming solutions that are kinder to hair and give predictable and efficient results.
