The 1930s hairstyles were characteristic of a side parting, straight hair at the top and curls at the ends to give volume. Some were just a bunch of curls styled well all around the head. Either way, they are hairstyles that have sustained through generations and are popular even today. They are versatile enough to go with most outfits and suitable for most occasions, whether formal or otherwise. They sport a side parting and a stylish bunch of curls and waves for volume.

The wavy hairstyles of the 1930s live on today, although many women wear their hair in less defined waves compared to decades past. Films like “The Aviator” and “Water for Elephants” also showcased curly coifs of the decade. In modern times, finger waves are often only seen at formal events and red carpet settings. See modern examples of 1930s hairstyles below.

When I decided to do a riff on the 1930’s, I knew I wanted to attempt to finger wave my hair because it became quite popular during this decade. The problem was, I had no idea how to go about it. So of course I Googled, “how to finger wave diy” and I found the most amazing video (here) by two women who call themselves the Scarlet Ladies. It was seriously one of the best produced vintage/retro videos I have seen in a while. What I want to know is why they have only done one video? Um hello! I want more! I basically followed their directions (after running to the beauty supply store to get the right clips) and voila! Finger waves!

For my makeup I decided to not darken in the crease of my eye, which I normally do. I just used a highlighter shadow on the brow and then a light pink shadow on the lid. I penciled in my brows and at first I drew them extra long, but it was just too costumey, so I erased that part. I used false lashes because I was going out “fancy” so I added a little bit of liner, which if you look in the period photos, isn’t very 1930’s. As for the lipstick, I kept my usual red lippy. I looked around my makeup for a more berry color, but didn’t really find anything I liked. As I mentioned in my 20’s beauty post, it was very strange seeing myself in a totally different look! I wasn’t as insecure this time around as I was with the frizzy Deco hair, but it was definitely weird seeing myself in the mirror with finger waves. With that said, I do think it is important to occasionally break out of your beauty routine and try something new, even if you don’t feel comfortable in it. Variety is the spice of life, and you never know what you can achieve until you try something you have never tried before.

Yes No Not Helpful 5 Helpful 13 How long will the waves stay in place? wikiHow Contributor I always finger wave and pin curl my hair, and my finger waves have lasted until I washed it again. I use extra-strength setting lotion (any quality brand should do) and I got the wave clamps from eBay. The finger wave technique is something that you get better at doing over time, and the hair will naturally begin to fall into that pattern when you finger wave it often. Thanks!

So 1930s women’s hairstyles were less polished, as compared to the shingle bobs and finger waves of the previous decade. Their crowns remained slick, but the base of the hair was much more voluminous — an optimal style to wear with smaller hats. Curls were softer, longer and lived-in like “King Kong” damsel in distress Fay Wray.

In the 1930s, the major trends for hairstyles were all about waves. With a softer look than the sleek bob and tight ringlets of the 1920s, women began wearing their hair in more feminine styles with parts sweeping to the side or down the middle. At the beginning of the decade, short hair still reigned with tresses kept close to the head. But as the 1930s marched on, women started opting for longer hair.
