1920s Hairstyles: How To Do It & Who To Copy 1920 hair By Anita Bhagwandas January 18, 2016 Everything you need to know about 1920’s hairstyles, by the experts Getting that authentic 1920’s hairstyle is tough, whether it’s for a fancy dress party or for a night of drinking, Charleston and looking like a Clara Bow-inspired starlet. But Mark Smith, Senior Stylist at John Frieda salons, has a few tips to help you nail the look to perfection… Get the kit right “You’ll need tongs – that’s essential. Either traditional loose handle barrel tongs or you could cheat and use the new three barreled tongs. Have a stash of long section clips to hand for holding the wave in place whilst each section of hair is cooling down. Or, if you want to get professional, you can get actual Marcel wave clips that are like a crocodile clips that pull the hair together in a clamp. Finally, get a decent bristle brush like a Mason & Pearson, a fine tooth comb and some oil based pomade for the finish.” Nail the parting “Always start with your parting – get it clean, and straight using your comb. We’re not looking to create volume here, and a straight, side parting keeps everything flat. Now take a 2-inch wide section from above the ear, nearest your face and work your way up to the parting placing the tongs upside down, so you are not adding volume and curl but bending the hair in a wave instead. Once you have completed one side, brush through into an S wave and secure with the clips by clipping into the bends and repeat on other side.” Create a faux bob “If your hair is short you only need to do this on the top sections. If it’s long hair you will need to create more waves at the back but then brush through and twist and tuck the ends under and secure with pins to create a faux bob.”     What to do if you’ve got very fine hair? “If your hair is fine and you’re worried about the lack of volume don’t be – it’s meant to be flat and stylised. If you’re self-conscious though, look into cool feathered hairbands or embellished slides which were typical of the era. They’ll add the volume you’re after.” 
What should you do with already curly hair? “If your hair is curly remove some of the volume and soften the curl either by using a water spray and manipulating the hair with a comb into place or use the tongs in sections and create more of a wave by dragging them along the curl until it softens. You want the curls to be uniform and flat rather than big and bouncy.” For 1920’s fashion inspiration

(Photo styled by Mel Arens, Mayapple boutique) Zelda Fitzgerald was the dynamic and willful wife of F. Scott Fitzgerald, iconic author of The Great Gatsby. The lead female character in that book, Daisy Buchanan was loosely based on Zelda. She was gorgeous and fashionable and hob-nobbed with the boot-legging elite of New York in the 1920’s. If you haven’t read it, please do. Read it before you go see the blockbuster movie that comes out next spring. I predict that 1920’s hairstyles are going to be HUGE next year, so lets get started early. Here is my interpretation of what Zelda’s hair must have looked like when attending a swank New York party. This 1920’s inspired DIY Gatsby girl hairstyle is much easier than it looks. I threw it together on a whim of experimentation on Whitney, my daughter’s fabulous kindergarten art teacher. I think she looks absolutely perfect as Zelda Fitzgerald. Her hair is fine and medium-long. It is heavily highlighted, which helps it hold a style. I used no styling products. If you have very slick hair, you will definitely need a good texture spray to disperse throughout your hair to hold this style. Because it is a very drape-y and loose hairstyle, It is hard to do on thick straight, coarse hair. If that’s what you have, first set your hair with texture spray on damp hair, and one of HTHG’s no heat curl techniques. This will help it hold. Definately get some long bobby pins, too. Here is how I did it….. 1. Start by sectioning the hair down the side of the back. One side should be about 2/3rds of the head, and the other should be about 1/3rd of the head. 2.On the heavy side, begin a twist that starts at the temple and wraps around the back of the head. 3. Continue the twist all the way to the end of the section. 4.Wrap the end into a loose bun and pin  through the bun with large bobby pins. 5. Reinforce the twist with a couple small bobby pins.Don’t worry about making a really neat bun. It looks better loose. 6. Now make another section that comes down from the top of the head to just in front of the ear. 7. twist that section down to the ends of the hair. 8. Now wrap it into a loose bun and pin it into place slightly above the first bun. Take a swig of a PBR and get ready for the next step. 9. Make another section that leaves just a small amount of hair around the face. Twist it back and pin it into a small loose bun. This time use little bobby pins so you can hide them better. 10. Take the last little bit of hair and twist it into a tiny little pincurl. 11. Snuggle it in with the curl before it and try and hide the pin. 12. Now give it a spray of firm hold hair spray if you want. It will help it hold. Bootleg bride, anyone? Flapper? red carpet starlet? stuck at home on a rainy day? DO IT! XOXO
