Victorian Women and Their Hair so Long, that put Rapunzel To Shame

Ian Smith

In the Victorian era, the women followed a rather unusual trend of never cutting their hair, like ever. In this period, woman’s hair was considered an important part of her appearance, it marked her status and her femininity.

Maybe it was very fashionable at that time, but can you imagine what these women were going through every day, maintaining a hair that long, god forbid if one of them got lice.

An important rite of passage for an adolescent girl during this time was the moment she began to wear her hair up. Previously it would have been worn loose or in plaits and tied up with a ribbon.

Among the fashionable middle and upper classes of Victorian society, a lady’s hair became the focal point of sexual interest, the primary expression of her femininity. For lower classes, it was rather difficult to maintain the long hair in rather terrible conditions amid the disease and poor hygiene. So, the poor women were obliged to cut their hair for cash, and we suppose they become like super rich, since they had enough hair to provide for one village of bald men.
