1930s Hairstyle – May Day Hair Decoration – 1936

Chic Coiffure Accents in flowers, jewels and feathers –

1930s Hairstyles parade with Jessie Tait

Nearly every head is now adorned these May evenings with ribbons, feathers, jewels, flowers and turbans, all decorating well-groomed heads. Colors usually match the evening gown, or the flowers or shoes worn. Jewelled clips, brooches, combs, and other hair-ornaments accompany smart evening gowns. Study your face and coiffure intently before trying any headdress, and decide which one would really become you.


Large pieces of colored stones are set in gold for this hair comb and clip earrings.
