The Long Haired Flapper

I did it! I made my first youtube video (although I'm still a little uneasy about it since there are so many mean commenters on youtube!)

There seemed to be a lack of 1920's styles for long hair, with the exception of faux-bobs on youtube. I have been doing a lot of research into 1920's styles for long hair so I thought I would make a couple videos and see how it goes. Let me know what you think!


PS: I know some spoken instructions might have helped but the "silent" format was chosen since I'm rather self-conscious of my voice. I had a speech impediment as a child and I still get nervous talking in front of people because of it  :(

  4. SOO cute!!! As you note, not all gals in the 20s went for the bob or eton crop. Those taller deeper cloches (designed to accommodate more hair) reflect that. Really neat tutorial--of course, your hair at the start (before you pinned it) was PERFECTLY baby vamp, too, so you could wear it down and still be historically accurate. Great tutorial--and I love that you went the silent route.

  7. Your hair looks so cute like that. I'll have to give it a try now that my hair has gotten (just) long enough to put up again. I have a feeling my hair will require lots of bobby pins!
