Women’s Hairstyles of Morocco from the 50’s.

21 12 2013

The header image of this blog comes from an investigative book of studies titled Coiffures Feminines du Maroc ( Female hairstyles of Morocco).  Mereille Morin Bard took on the task of creating this scientific and artistic documentation between 1950 and 1952.

The often sculpture-like hairstyles and rich ornaments found in this book are ways of identifying tribes or ethnic groups often dispersed geographically ;markings maintaining autonomy. The women in this book are of  Berber/Amazigh, Jewish and Arab origins,  south of the high Atlas mountains.

To order a copy of this book see : http://www.amazon.fr/Coiffures-f%C3%A9minines-Maroc-Haut-Atlas/dp/2857444923
