HAIR STYLE

WHICH TYPE WOULD YOU PREFER???

Short Hair in the 1920s In the 1920s there was trend for short hair. Hair style was first bobbed, then shingled, finally, Eton cropped in 1926-7 . An Eton crop was considered daringand shocked some of the older generation since hair had always been thought a woman's crowning glory. In 1920s hair styles, only maiden aunts and elderly dowagers avoided the severe shorter styles.


The term flapper in the 1920s referred to a "new breed" of young women who wore short skirts, bobbed their hair, listened to the new jazz music, and flaunted their disdain for what was then considered acceptable behavior.

The flappers were seen as brash for wearing excessive makeup, drinking, treating sex in a casual manner, smoking, driving automobiles, and otherwise flouting conventional social and sexual norms.


FLAPPER

A KIND OF FASHION IN 1920

BEHAVIOR Flappers went to jazz clubs at night where they danced provocatively, smoked cigarettes through long holders, sniffed cocaine (which was legal at the time) and dated promiscuously. They rode bicycles and drove cars. They drank alcohol openly, a defiant act in the American period of Prohibition. Petting became more common than in the Victorian era. Petting Parties, where petting was the main attraction, became popular. Flappers also began taking work outside the home and challenging a 'woman's place' in society. Voting and women's rights were also practiced. With time came the development of dance styles then considered shocking, such as the Charleston, the Shimmy, the Bunny Hug and the Black Bottom.


FLAPPER

A KIND OF FASHION IN 1920

Appearance In addition to their irreverent behavior flappers were known for their style, which largely emerged as a result of the musical style of jazz and the popularization of dancing that accompanied it. Called garรงonne in French ("boy" with a feminine suffix), flapper style made them look young and boyish. Short hair, flattened breasts, and straight waists accentuated the look. Despite all the scandal flappers generated, their look became fashionable in a toned-down form among even respectable older women. Most significantly, the flappers removed the corset from female fashion, raised skirt and gown hemlines and popularized short hair for women. Among the actresses most closely identified with the style were Olive Borden,Olive Thomas, Dorothy Mackaill, Alice White
