One of my gt gt grandfathers is listed as a hairdresser in 1853. This is also the occupation listed for the bride's father, and I also find that one of his brothers was also a hairdesser. This seems to be an unusual occupation for men at this time. I can only think that it was horse-hair they were dressing. Anyone else got any idea?
