1920s Hairstyles and Hair Ornaments  Health Facts Plus

Throughout 1925 the shingle and close-clipped bobs became increasingly popular, each week seeing new fans take up the fashion. Most women sought expert advice and unbiased opinions before getting their hair cut short.

In 1925, the size of the head, its shape, and the amount of hair were matters that had to be considered so that a successful and becoming bobbed hair arrangement was achieved. The hair was cut so that the head appeared in the correct proportion to the rest of the figure, the overall balance of the figure being the effect for which women strived.

Because bobbed hair or the shingle effect did not conform agreeably with the dignity of evening clothes, it was quite imperative that the hair be dressed and that the decoration be chosen to exemplify the period expressed in the gown. Medium-long hair was arranged in a long flat roll at the nape of the neck. The hair-line following the contour of the head and the long roll, or chignon, gave the effect of the bob.

A back band of flat hand-made roses and petals in the various pastel shades was used for adornment. The centers of the roses were finished with tiny glass beads.

Girls with a round face with this same type of hair arrangement, also found the tiara-effect head-dress to their liking. Tiny hand-made flowers of ombre chiffon in rose colors finished at each ear with a large rose of the chiffon surrounded with gold petals on a wide band of silver ribbon was used to construct the tiara. A strip of elastic was sometimes used across the back under the coil of hair.

Girlish simplicity was displayed in the smart all-around bandeau effect which was especially good for the regulation bob. A typical bandeau consisted of a band of No 9 gold ribbon with three hand-made, orchid silk flowers and green foliage leaves appliqued across the front. A small piece of elastic was used under the flower and the bandeau slipped down over the head or the band could be fastened at one side with a snap under the rose.

The extremely popular shingle cut, with a wide, natural-looking wave, was very popular. To imitate this effect with long hair, divide the front and the back hair at the ears, coil the back portion close to the head high at the back, and then comb the front portion over it, swirl this around and tuck the end in low at one side, as for the French twist.

GOLD lame was used for a head-dress which consists of a 2-inch band studded with rhinestones and finished at each side with a generous-size hand-made poppy, also studded with the brilliants.

Adapted from the Grecian, another style of head-dress consisted of two bands of gold ribbon outlined with narrower silk ribbon in contrasting colors.

Following years would see a rapid uptake of finger waves, as the styling of finger waving complemented the shorter close cut bobs that now dominated the hair fashions.
