Here is our flapper with the short, wavy hairstyle. Life is bright and
colorful and beautiful, and very active for women in all pursuits. They
are actresses, working women, and investors. Eventually the end of the
decade would see the financial disaster that would be followed quickly
by the depression and the dust bowl of the midwest. Life was about to
be short and sweet as long as the Roaring Twenties continued to roar.
Our model has the big eyes and small mouth of a child, the makeup
defining the definition of childlike youthfulness. This image would be
captured once again half a century later when Japanese Anime churned out
a factory-load of cartoon characters who all looked like children, with
big eyes, small mouths, and pointed chins. The 1920s were the first
decade to explore the theme of the adult who was like a child.
Hairstyles were short and very wavy or curly. Shirley Temple defined
the junior ages, Louise Brooks defined the bob-haired style, and Theda
Bara captured the vamp-look, much of which had been influenced by the
excitement of the finds in Egypt. Girls wanted to look young. The
example here is rather reserved and proper for the era.
