'100 Years Of Russian Beauty' Is The Most Gorgeous History Lesson Ever

Cut Video's '100 Years Of Beauty' series shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon, and we're not complaining. The most recent installment, which takes a look back over a century of Russian beauty, might be the best one yet.

Model Anya Zaytseva and a team of hair and makeup artists show off a broad range of elaborate looks, starting with an elaborate, pearl-adorned style from 1910. The video goes on to show the evolution of Russian beauty over the years, complete with a fur hat in the 1970s (of course).

As usual, the video provides a stunning glimpse into the past -- not to mention some major hair inspo. We'd wear any single one of those hairstyles today! Check out the gorgeous video above, and click here to get a look behind-the-scenes.
