AN AIR OF ABANDON 1920s Hair & Beauty Talk - Thursday 20 October
The 1920s encompasses not only the creation of the modern cosmetics and beauty industry, but also the power of the movies to shape taste and behaviour. Access to stockings, shoes and cosmetics, as well as to magazines that documented the latest trends, contributed to an extraordinary shift in women’s opportunities to explore and express themselves. The time had come for many women to have their hair cut short, but what shaped the transformative club-cut or Eton crop? Why was the ‘bob’ so revolutionary? And, why are so many of us still intrigued by this era’s elegance? Is it simply because it is a decade that’s easy to recreate on screen? Join us for a talk in which Caroline Cox considers the beauty influences that shaped the Jazz Age, focusing on the rebellious and transformative bob haircut; and Maggie Norden shares her interest in Screen Style, with specific reference to some remarkable women pioneers and their modes of ‘fun’.
