This short article focuses on the profession of hairdressing as a trade that runs in certain families. One of the ten interviewed male hairdressers refers to his family as a dynasty of hairdressers. While some are born into or 'naturally' related to the trade, others are drawn into it wishing to be part of a certain imagined community. The interviews with the male hairdressers took place in early 2005 as part of a larger project on men in women's professions, in this case statistically defined. The project was carried out at the Danish Research centre on Gender Equality.
