The height of the style was due to the volume of hair and its natural spring.
This was very much a young man's style mainly young men who had been children during the Great War.
The majority of men who wore this style had hair with a natural wave which they exploited.The examples shown on this page are extremes. Most men wore less flamboyant versions with less bulk and height.
My own father wore this hairstyle from his youth until the day he died.
