My 1920s hairstyle for my wedding
Back when I first cut my hair for my wedding, I posted pictures and a description of "my flapper haircut". Although some people like the cut and have thanked me for the pictures, others complained that it's not 1920s-enough.
I actually agree now (though I still don't appreciate some of the meaner comments); I had my hair cut several more times before the wedding, and the final cut was a much better representative of a 1920s hairstyle. Actually, that was the beauty of cutting my hair so long before the wedding — I had plenty of time to perfect the look.
Below are pictures of my 1920s hairstyle on the day of my wedding. I think you'll agree that this cut made a much better flapper hairstyle:
The cut was a blunt cut, with some texturing to cut down on the bulk in my thick, naturally curly hair. The sides and front were a little shorter than the back, which was a mistake on the part of my hairdresser, but actually worked out quite well.
The next picture shows a side view of my 1920s haircut. Although it looks like I did loose 1920s finger waves in my hair, my hair — which is naturally curly — actually did this on its own.
The haircut looked really flapper-esque with my 1920s cloche, too. I love the little bunch of curls visible on each side:
The lighting in this picture is fantastic, and with the 1920s hairstyle and the 1920s wedding dress, the scene has a very antique feel to it:
