Also known as a bobtail is a type of hairstyle, typically worn by women, where the hair is pulled back from the face, twisted or plaited, and wrapped in a circular coil around itself, typically on the back of the head or neck. They can either be secured with a hairpiece, a hairnet and bobby pins. They may be tightly gathered or slightly messier and more informal. They, like ponytails, may cause headaches if worn too tight or up too high on the head.
In India, it's common for female college professors to wear their hair, in order to identify with their profession.
Men are not often seen wearing them, but they can do so. This may be because they are using it in a practical way such as in sport (like samurais) or using it in a formal way.
Also known as a ‘ballet,’ this hairstyle is used by nearly all female ballet dancers and some male ballet dancers, with a few notable exceptions. Ballet dancers often use hairnets and bobby pins to make it as tight and neat as possible. This is especially important while turning, as loose ones may fall out and it has to look presentable.
In China, it is known as ‘ox horns’. It was commonly used up until the early 20th century, and can still be seen today when traditional attire is used. It differs from the odango slightly in that it is gender neutral; Chinese paintings of children have frequently depicted girls as having matching ox horns, while boys have a single in the back. Some are for ballet classes or dance class.
The Beehive is a woman's hairdo that resembles a beehive; it is also known as the B-52, for its similarity to the bulbous nose of the B-52 Stratofortress bomber. It originated as one of a variety of elaborately teased and lacquered versions of ‘big hair’ that developed from earlier pageboy and bouffant styles. It was developed in 1960 by Margaret Vinci Heldt of Elmhurst, Illinois, owner of the Margaret Vinci Coiffures in downtown Chicago, who won the National Coiffure Championship in 1954, and who had been asked by the editors of Modern Beauty Salon magazine to design a new hairstyle that would reflect the coming decade. She originally modelled it on a fez-like hat that she owned. In recognition of her achievement, Cosmetologists Chicago, a trade association with 60,000 members, created a scholarship in Heldt’s name for creativity in hairdressing. The beehive style was popular throughout the 1960s, particularly in the United States and other Western countries, and remains an enduring symbol of 1960s kitsch.
An updo is a hair style that involves arranging it instead of allowing it to fall freely. It can be as simple as a ponytail, but is more commonly associated with more elaborate styles intended for special occasions such as a prom or wedding.
A French twist is a common ‘updo’ styling technique. It is created by gathering it in a low ponytail (not secured) and twisting the ponytail upwards until it turns in on itself against the head. It is then secured with pins, clips, sticks or a comb.
French twists are usually worn to proms and weddings when they are in a tight fashion; however, one could wear a messier, looser look to the office or out on the town. Hairclips are also commonly used with French twists.
