The original Shingle was a very short tapered cut, exposing the hairline at the back of the neck.|
Nearly all the bobbed hairstyles I have seen are hybrids of the named styles.
It was the popularity of the Shingle and its modifications which closed the chapter on long hairstyles.
The Shingle often required hair grips or hairslides to control the sides.
Later modifications of the Shingle allowed longer sides, a fringe and in the early thirties, a longer back.
This allowed Perms to be applied and resulted in minor variations
The Bingle (Bob cut short enough to be above the nape of the neck)
The Mingle (n.f.d )
and The Cringle (n.f.d) appeared.
