Girls, here’s good news for you! How would you like to get a hundred dollars – just for being a flapper?
Also a chance to move to Hollywood and become an actress star !
Provided you are more of a flapper than any of the entrants in THE FLAPPER BEAUTY CONTEST !
You don’t have to be beautiful to be a flapper, and if you’re not a flapper, you wouldn’t be considered beautiful !
The thing is – you must be a flapper.
WHAT DOES A FLAPPER LOOK LIKE ?
Well, thats hard to tell. A Chicago beauty column recently listed her characteristics as follows:
1. Hairstyle – Bobbed
2. Make-up – powder and rouge on face – use of lip stick
3. Face – plucked eyebrows
4. Dress – low cut sleeveless bodice, absence of corset, little underclothing, often only a teddy bear, high skirts and roll your own stockings.
If you’re friends think you’re a flapper, chances are – you are !
