100 Years of Men’s Hairstyles


One of my daily social media reads is the Mental_floss Magazine.  Mental_floss describes their magazine as:  “an intelligent read, but not too intelligent. We’re the sort of intelligent that you hang out with for a while, enjoy our company, laugh a little, smile a lot and then we part ways. Great times. And you only realize how much you learned from us after a little while. Like a couple of days later when you’re impressing your friends with all these intriguing facts and things you picked up from us, and they ask you how you know so much, and you think back on that great afternoon you spent with us and you smile.”  Yes, I find every word of their description of their works to be true.

Sailors-Samuel and My Dad FrankYesterday’s video post by Mental_floss reviewed history from a man’s fashion sense; i.e., men’s hairstyle changes over the last 100 years. And giving credit where credit is due, the model, Sam Orson, remains quite adaptive and attractive throughout all the styles over the decades.  In fact, his 1940’s style where he dons a sailor’s cap brought back images of photos of my dad from his times as a sailor as well as other remembrances of times in which I have had the pleasure of experiencing life. Hope you enjoy this cleverly done video as much as I did!
