Hairstyles and Fashion: A Hairdresser's History of Paris, 1910-1920 (Dress, Body, Culture)



The way a society deals with hair speaks volumes about its structures, its wealth, and its values. How is hair arranged? Is it left long or cut short? How often is it washed? Do men and women treat their hair differently and what does this tell us about gender?

This stimulating book contains articles written by the Paris hairstylist Emile Long between December 1910 and December 1920 for an English trade journal. Long's purpose in writing was to keep English coiffeurs informed about the goings-on in the world of fashion and hairdressing in France, and especially in Paris. In doing so he has provided us with a personal cultural history of the world's most fashionable city in a period that stretches from the end of the Belle Epoque, through the First World War, and into the opening year of the Roaring Twenties. His investigation of hairstyles and fashion inevitably leads him to a fascinating discussion of important historical issues: the 'true' nature of Woman; the genesis and democratization of fashion; and popular attitudes towards hygiene. With his engaging literary style Long invites us to think about consumer habits and technology, notions of fashion and cleanliness, and changing ideals of femininity and the social order.

Students and scholars of history, fashion and French society will enjoy these rich and revealing accounts of what hair means to identity and culture.

From my collection of early 20th century Japanese found photography (picked up during regular trips to the Togo Shrine antique flea market in Tokyo). I would guess, based on the young girl's attire and hairstyle, that this photo was taken in the 1920s or 1930s.

I particularly like the not-so-subtle overstitching on her collar and cuffs, as well as her attempts to tame her hair into a fashionable hairstyle of the day.

My Aunt graduated from Hartford High School in 1950 and she and my Uncle were married sometime soon after that. She has since passed on but I thought their wedding photo with her full train a good way to highlight the white beaded and jeweled evening purse with mirrored clasp :>)

Art Deco Hair: Hairstyles of the 1920s and 1930s






Art deco has long been associated with uncompromising style and sophistication, and this guide to recreating the sassy, controversial styles of the '20s and '30s offers a glimpse back at the hairstyles of this era. The instructions needed to replicate these fashions on the modern woman-from the controversial bob of the Roaring Twenties flapper to the luxurious finger waves of Hollywood's early screen stars-are provided, and the techniques behind Marcel and water waves, the simple bob, and Eton and shingle cuts are also included. Hundreds of vintage illustrations, photographs, step-by-step instructions, and diagrams take readers through the history of the hairstyles that laid the groundwork of style for the modern American woman.
