THE PIN CHRON­I­CLE

Let the story un­fold

Hair - - Editor's Letter -

A part from star­tling beauty, what do Greek, Ro­man and Egyp­tian women have in com­mon? Or what is it that con­nects them to women of an­cient North and South Amer­i­can cul­tures? It is in­deed the ex­ten­sive use of hair ac­ces­sories. “From clips, brooches, bar­rettes, hair sticks to pins—hair or­na­ments have been a part of his­tory ever since women be­gan to adorn their bod­ies,” says style ex­pert Bhavneet Se­j­pal from Ac­ces­sorize, In­dia. Think tribal body paints or Cleopa­tra’s long beauty baths. From Greek god­desses, English queens, Ja­panese geishas to In­dian brides – hair ac­ces­sories have been an in­nate part of adorn­ment for women across his­tory. SONAL

VED traces its growth to present day use.
