100 Years of Changing Iranian Beauty, Hair, and Makeup in 1 Minute

After bringing us 100 years of beauty focused on the US, Cut is back with a similarly captivating timelapse video capturing how ideas of beauty, hairstyles, and makeup trends have changed in Iran over the past century.

In one short minute, the model Sabrina embodies radically different ideals of female Iranian beauty. It's truly fascinating to see how cosmetics, hair, and the hijab have undergone transformations from decade to decade. As usual, Cut's work is not only enthralling to watch, but also remarkably well-researched and accurate, making the video a fantastic lesson in aesthetics as well as history.
