|One of the shorter of the "bobbed" hairstyles.|
Although this style was not as severe as the Eton Crop it still gave limited scope to the wearer.
It is of course possible that a proportion of these portraits are of women who have chosen to grow-out their Eton crop or were reluctant to fully adopt that style in the first place.
The Brushed-Back bob and the Eton crop were both styles which looked very attractive when worn by women with delicate features.
Easy to maintain and easy to wear under a cloche hat, it was a popular style in its day.
Other named Bobs:-
and the succeeding Shingle and its variants.
