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.
