National Hair Day was created in 2017 by hair product company NuMe to highlight the stylists, tools, products, and those who maintain the beautification of hair.

The hairdressing industry is a multibillion-dollar global business, with thousands of salons and hairstylists around the world.

Interesting Facts about Hairdressing

  • The word "hairdresser" comes from the French word "coiffeur," which means "one who arranges hair."

  • In ancient Egypt, barbers also acted as dentists and surgeons, performing everything from haircuts to teeth extractions.

  • In the Middle Ages, barbershops were also popular places for bloodletting and other medical procedures.

  • The first hair dryer was invented in 1890 by French hairstylist Alexander Godefroy. It was a large, seated device that used heat to dry hair.

  • The first electric hair clipper was invented in 1919 by Leo J. Wahl, who was inspired to create it after watching an electric train.

  • In the 1920s and 1930s, the bob haircut became a popular style for women. It was often worn with a "finger wave" style, which involved creating S-shaped waves in the hair using a comb and hair gel.

  • Many hairstylists are trained in specific techniques, such as cutting, coloring, and styling, and may specialize in certain types of hair, such as curly or fine.

  • Hairdressing competitions are popular events in the industry, where hairstylists compete to create the most innovative and creative hairstyles.

  • In some cultures, hairdressing is considered a sacred art, and hairstylists may undergo years of training and apprenticeship before they are considered master stylists.
