The hats of the 1920s have detailed text on
Cloche Hats on an earlier page
here. Hairstyles remained simple in shape and were often adorned at night
with bandeaus, barrettes, aigrettes and other hair ornamentation including
turbans and exotic feathers. As the hat became snugger and closer fitting so
the hairstyle became more
cropped and masculine.
These images of hats and hair styles are from
magazines from 1920, 1923 , 1927 and 1930. Each page
prints out to A4 size. This is really the last era when the
turban was a truly universal fashion among women unless the
catwalk turban fashion led by Prada in 2007 takes off.

Short Hair in the 1920s
In the 1920s there was trend for short hair. Hair style was first bobbed,
then shingled, finally, Eton cropped in 1926-7. An Eton crop was considered daring and
shocked some of the older generation, since hair had always been thought a woman's
crowning glory. In 1920s hair styles, only maiden aunts and elderly dowagers avoided the severe shorter styles.
