Links for 1920s hairstyles
I've noticed that my 1920s wedding blog has been getting a lot of hits lately. Since many of the keyword searches that feed my blog seem to be people looking for information to use to plan their own 1920s wedding, I've decided that I should post some links that I have found helpful in my own planning.
Today's links have to do with 1920s hairstyles. Part of planning my 1920s-themed wedding was finding a hairstyle that would go with it. Although I decided not to try to do finger-waves in my hair - my hair curls enough all on its own - I think many who want a Roaring Twenties wedding are interested in that hairstyle. So, here is a list of my favorite pages on 1920s hair:
"The Bob" by Michael Warner - This page is definitely my favorite. It gives a good overview of the bob hairstyle and its history, as well as several good pictures of 1920s bobs and bob-related trivia. The page also has a great clip of 1920s music!
1920s Hair Dos - This page is a great resource for photos of 1920s hair! A whole series of pictures show the changing bobbed hairstyles over each year of the decade. I actually took the middle picture on the "1923" row of photos when I got my hair cut.
Classic Hairstyles from 1924 - This page shows a handful or so of little thumbnail pictures depicting bobs from 1924. I particularly like the topmost picture, which shows how headbands were worn with bobs in the 1920s.
The 1920s - page 2 - This page gives a few good pictures of 1920s hairstyles and headgear.
Ridge Procedure in Finger Waving - This page on Hairrific.com gives good instructions on creating finger waves in your or someone else's hair.
Finger Waving - This PDF file gives very detailed instructions on creating finger waves, accompanied with sketched illustrations.
The New Woman of the 1920s: Debating Bobbed Hair - This site is mainly for fun. The page contains quotes from 1920s women about the pros and cons of bobbed hair. Interesting to read!
