1914-18 war • Brow band

Fashion for young women from about 1918 to 1924
The Brow-band, when it appeared at the end of the Great war, was little more than a hair ribbon, developed later into the Bandeau, a distinctive item of twenties fashion.
The brow-band was part of a classical Greek style, often worn with simple white dresses, popular after the Great War.

In photographs, the position of the brow-band often expresses the personality of the wearer.
