I love changes. And I love new hair styles, new haircuts and looks.
2 days ago, Vogue wrote: Everyone knows the Modern year of 2020 is going on, and in the Modern year, every teenage girl and young ladies want to wear a different look before going to any special event or festival. So you should just need to wear this look of Short Hair and get a more attractive look on the next special occasion.
“The 20th Century bob hairstyle symbolizes the independent, progressive, and spirited woman. Many have turned to vintage-style bobbed hair to encourage a more daring side of their personality. Think Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. Think Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction. Think Louise Brooks in… well…all of her silent movies. Millie even felt thoroughly modern when her locks were shorn. French designer Coco Chanel has her hair bobbed in 1916. When Bernice bobbed her hair in 1920 it signified a change in her personality from mousey to sassy.
Many women have turned to the bob hairstyle looking for a dramatic change inside themselves and to abandon the past along with the hair. As is usual with the 20th Century, the movies and media play a big part in promoting and popularising the fashion of the day with many women copying the styles of their filmstar idols.
Strong female personas throughout history have been defined by their bob hairstyle. Cleopatra is often depicted wearing aspects of the bobbed style (actually, it’s a braided headpiece). Also Joan of Arc in the 15th Century. Pioneer aviator Amelia Earhart wore cropped hair. Richard the Third…well… for him, maybe not so much about the hairstyle.
We all know very well the famous short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald is published in the USA’s Saturday Evening Post magazine. The story is titled Bernice Bobs Her Hair and tells the tale of a young sweet girl who is transformed into an avenging vamp merely by getting a bob haircut.
In the 1960s the bob is about to become as radical a style shape as in the 1920s and will symbolise a further phase of female emancipation. Young women take interest in the future and distance themselves from the stuffy austere past of their parents (does this sound familiar?).
In 1963 Vidal Sassoon re-styles the bob and its attitude for the 1960s by creating the five point bob cut.
It is short, geometric, angular, unfussy. This time the bob is easier to style as the shape lies in the cut and can be styled at home.
Now we also have tame bobs: soft classic bobs that are flattering and not too severe; bobs that don’t look like bobs and back to bobbing the hair for practical reasons. And, if you are Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, the bob is the only haircut to be taken seriously in fashion circles.”
It is from an amazing article, you can read it here: https://visforvintage.net/2012/04/03/history-of-bob-hairstyle/
Mmmmm, It will sound strange, but I think about some kind of this look almost all my life. I have worn this look many times and in different variations, but very rarely was satisfied with it: too short, too long, too, too…
Last 7 years, I have worn African hair braids.
It was wonderful and inspiring! I have had red hair, white hair, orange hair, pink hair, brown hair, black hair, 4 color hair, and many other crazy colors. I took the braids off yesterday and realized that my own hair is long enough for new experiments with the cut and the color! What do you think? Of course, I want a bob haircut and light red hair! Oh, gosh! Now It’s time to choose. I have some pictures and need help: which hair cut is the most attractive???
I personally like the most the 4th one.
