Hair!
Designed by Meghann Oriet, Class of 2002
Hair!
Hair is one of the most defining physical characteristics of an individual. Hairstyles are used to express individuality as well as keep up with the latest trends in the fashion world. In this photographic gallery, Whitworth College students from the year 1914 up to the year 2002 are on hairstyle parade. Whether conservative or eccentric, they all display the changing social, cultural, and gender attitudes in the United States over the past eighty-eight years. The images were taken from the Natsihi yearbooks from the archives at Whitworth College with the permission of Whitworth College. These pages were designed to show how much social change has occurred over the years and how that change could be felt at even the smallest of institutions. It is up to you, the viewer, to decide how to continue to perpetuate change and how to best remember those who came before you.
