Throwback Tresses: The Rip-Roarin’ Twenties

September 23, 2010

The progressive ladies of the roarin’ 20s did everything they possible could to defy the tame, demure style of the Victorian era:

Instead of hairnets, stiff ringlets and complicated curls, flappers of the 20’s were all about rebellion! They chopped their long locks into short bobs; opting for convenience over tradition.


In the later part of the decade, the stiffer Dutch Boy bob regained a bit of its wave as a more styled, curled version of the bob gained popularity.

The twenties were all about revolution and rebellion; a decade that reinvented the idea of femininity. To date, this era and its accompanying hairstyles have had an undeniably impressive impact on today’s trends.
