1920s Hairstyles for Long Hair. In 1924, a year before the famous Pringle Shingle, actress Aileen Pringle creates a convincing bob with her long tresses.
Aileeen Pringle is still not prepared to lose her lovely long tresses. So she has compromised on the 1920’s bob with this two-in-one coiffure.
Here, Aileen looks like a girl who has never so much as put a pair of scissors to her crowning glory.
But if you look below, you will see how she can deceive the public into thinking she has bobbed her hair.
If it were not for the tresses at the side, one could swear she had bobbed her hair. She cut it off bob-fashion in the back to take the weight off her head. Comfort first.
The side view makes one think Jack the Clipper had stolen up from behind her and snipped off enough to make a wig for his baby’s best loved doll.
Above, she show’s just exactly what she can do with it if she wants to give the appearance of a bob hair cut.“I’m in love with the French bob, which is a little longer than Mary Thurman’s Dutch bob. I may dare to go for a short bob hairstyle soon. At least it can always grow back!”
She’s already half way there and committed to tying up her hair in a 1920’s bob, so we say – why not go for the full crop Aileen ?
The Shingle Haircut of 1925
Just one year later in 1925, Aileen astounded the movie going public with her shingle haircut, which was copied across America.
That’s all !
