Think mystery, think elegance, think feminine beauty, and you get an idea of the hair fashion of the 1920s. There is something about 1920s Hairstyles that is invariably full of a formal appeal which makes you imagine dressy balls and sit-down dinners. A look at film shoots and pictures dating from the 1920s gives you a good idea about the fashion in those years. It was a time of careful dressing and elaborate hairstyles with a lot of emphasis on frames for the face. Waves were hugely popular as frames for the formally made up faces of 1920s heroines.
The Twenties were a time of experimentation with different hair fashions, ranging from the classy back brushed style to arrangements involving curls and locks. It is also a time that experimented a lot with short chic hairstyles. Most hairstyles of that era, from severely short crops, to long side ponytails, have a touch of wave for a soft and romantic look. A back brushed and pinned up style made the hairline smooth and formally neat. A typical style you find in movies from the Twenties is dramatically made up faces with a formal curl arranged carefully breaking the smooth hairline. Often the adventurous women of the 1920s went for more dramatic looks with a mass of short waves, or one or two curls dancing across both sides of the forehead. High street fashion meant plenty of play with pretty cloth hairbands while soft bangs let some hair escape over the forehead for a girly look. Fresh and feminine, magical and formal, these are the key notes of 1920s hair fashion for women.
