If you're talking trichology (as someone just mentioned), yes, but it's limited in scope. Trichology is most often used in medical/health contexts (especially in forensics). Trichology addresses hair and scalp health as a general rule, but as for cosmetological concerns, which involve a lot of aesthetic concerns, there isn't a formally labeled and universally applicable "hair science" a person can turn to for objective answers.
