For a woman, what is hair?
In Joseon Dynasty, black, balloon-like hair is a prerequisite for beauty, while short and stiff hair is described as negative and ugly. In 1920, a new woman was called a modern girl. For women, short hair had a strong sense of challenge to the established system. Now in 2019, women also cut their hair. It is a movement that rejects the social definition of “feminine”, escaping“Corset” movement.
