1920s Hairstyles – The Bob to Suit Your Type

Hollywood Hairstyles for 1925 –


With so many wide variations of the bob haircut to choose from, a girl has a hard time these days deciding just what particular style suits her best. A study of the modes worn by various screen actresses might be helpful, for they have the benefit of so much expert advice and criticism that they are in a good position to know what’s suitable to various types.

Leading the way this year is the so called “vampire bob” and its two leading exponents are Louise Brooks and Clara Bow.


Another bob of the year is unquestionably that of Margaret Livingston, whose herself is of an unusual type anyway. Margaret introduced the novelty of pointed bangs, which give her a strange Egyptian look. Margaret Morris, one of the younger Paramount players, is another whose style is ingénue.


Greta Nissen, alert and restless in nature, is forever trying new modes of arranging her hair, but the style she sports here is quite characteristic. Helene Chadwick achieves a dressy effect for evenings but inserting a soft Marcel wave.


Leatrice Joy – soon to be seen in The Clinging Vine, has been trying out her mannish bob in Beverly Hills circuit and has certainly turned heads. An import from the cabarets of Europe, the androgenous look is daring. Oddly enough a mannish haircut worn with pretty feminine clothing makes for an overall enhanced feminine beauty as Myrna Loy demonstrates in What Price Beauty ?


Marie Prevost‘s bob is fittingly demure in style, while Gloria Swanson looks better with the tailored effect that is still quite feminine.

That’s all !
