The long hair from each temple area was swept back over each ear giving the style its name.
As with most of the hairstyles during the war the Swoops style involved lifting the hair from around a woman's face.
The emphasis given to the swoops depended upon the individual.Some women adopted quite subdued swoops others did not.
