words by Stephanie Helmberger
For a lot of people hair has always been a symbol of pride and vitality.
In Physiognomy consistency and texture of the hair give insights on both the character and health of a person.
Imagine hairs as extended nerves. They symbolize the vitality, soul, and temperament of someone.
Wild hair sticking out in every direction refers to action, a strong spirit of contradiction, and a desire to criticize.
Straight and tamed hair gives us a sense of discipline and reason.
People who have very fine hair are more sensitive in their feelings as well as everything affecting their bodies.
Those with strong and thick hair are more robust and can endure more, both mentally and physically. This also depends on the body type.
Creative men or artists often stand out of the crowd with their wild mane. Check out the hair of Beethoven or Einstein.
If we are sick, our hair hangs down and we feel even worse. If the disease lasts longer or our body is malnourished, our hair loses its shine and becomes dull.
Fine hair sticking out like a crown or little antennas around the head symbolizes a keen sense and acute awareness.
Often men start to lose their hair on their head and instead start growing it on the back and the face. This can be due to genetic factors or is a sign of too much testosterone in the body.
For women long hair is often a sign of fertility and femininity.
Did you know where you wear your ponytail or bun on your head means something different?
If worn on the upper part of the head, where the area of self-consciousness, pride, and ego sits, it emphasizes strength and willpower.
A bun worn in the middle underlines the axis of concentration and shows diligence and a readiness for hard work.
A ponytail or chignon at the nape of the neck accentuates the love for home and family, and a sense for handicraft and little things.
When people go through a crisis they often decide to change their hairstyle. Teenager let their hair grow for rebellious reasons and cut it when they want to be taken seriously. Women often cut their hair after break-ups. Men going through a mid-life crisis may suddenly let their beard grow…
Hair just expresses how the soul feels.
