Flapper Hair..

17 Apr

I’ve just bought a whole batch of new stock and have unwittingly been attracted to 1920s images featuring women with sleek flapper crops. I have tried this style on my own hair before but it’s really hard to keep it slicked down. Perhaps I have an advert somewhere for the hair product they used to use…

The advert below is by G Bourdier for the Malaceine Brand;



Another really strong image of cropped hair profiles is this one for L’Oreal;



Will you ask to be “bobbed”, “shingled” or “Eton cropped” at your next hair appointment?!

    Love those vintage ads! I don’t think I could go that drastically short myself, but it’s a great look. I love how it was so symbolic and significant at the time. 🙂

      I know..It was definitely a way of using a strong look to make a strong statement!
