Some time during the Renaissance, women began to tint their hair using lemons, or mixtures of sulphur, alum, and honey. In the early twentieth century chemicals along with modern techniques were developed with this purpose in mind. Later, in the 60’s a popular method for highlighting became the use of a cap, that resembled a pasta draining dish, was utilized along with a hook to pull strands of hair through the holes for colouring or at the time, bleaching. Although, the results were somewhat promising the method seem a bit more barbaric because of the discomfort and stress of this particular method.
