At first, the dresses only rose and got shorter by a little bit, but by 1925 to 1927 a flapper’s skirt fell just below the knee (ohhh). The Gibson Girl, who prided herself on her long, beautiful, lush hair, was shocked when the flapper cut hers off. The short haircut was called the “bob” which was later replaced by an even shorter haircut, the “shingle” or “Eton” cut.

a decade after irene castle chopped off her locks, the bob trend still dominated women’s style. the flappers of the 1920′s cut their hair into shingle bobs, best exemplified by actress louise brooks.

Colleen Moore (1899-1988) is one of my all time favourite silent film stars.  She had one blue eye and one brown and had to pass a “test” to ensure it would not be a distraction in films!
