20’s hair relied heavily on curling irons, finger waves and waxes. Short, wavy hair was the norm. Straight bobs with bangs were also a very popular look. Ladies used accents like feathers, headbands, pins, and netting to accentuate their hairstyles.



Makeup

Makeup in the 1920’s was all about bold contrast. Women painted their faces like porcelain dolls. Heavy eye makeup with dark lips was popular for a night out on the town. Another trend during this era was tweezing and/or concealing natural eyebrows in favor of painting on thin, fake eyebrows. However, more natural looks would leave the eye area alone with the focus being placed on bright red lips.
