*UPDATED FOR 2018* I have always been more than a little obsessed with The Great Gatsby. The novel is one of my favourite books, and I have had a huge crush on the 1920s since I read it as a teenager. And I am also a huge, huge Baz Luhrmann fan – despite some bad reviews, I ADORED every second of his film version. Now I won’t go into the many reasons why it’s one of my favourite movies, except for one – Gatsby styling is awesome. The dresses, the hair… wouldn’t we all want to play dress up as Daisy Buchanan for one night? Incredibly flattering. So it’s really no surprise that I love the 1920s trend that has made its way into weddings (and stayed) – what is surprising to me in a way is just how popular it has been with everyone else. Our post on Gatsby bridesmaid dresses is a perennial favourite, and it got me thinking that maybe it would be fun to do a hair feature on 1920s and 1930s-inspired styles. They’re not period replicas, but this series of beautiful (very flattering) styles incorporates some 1920s trademarks – finger waves, bobs, beautiful Art Deco hairpieces, soft buns curled into the nape. I dare you not to fall in love with one, or several, old sport!
