Twenties  • extreme Windblown or Windswept hairstyle

Here we have the extreme of the windblown styles. Some would say it is one step away from no style at all.

What can I say?
Here we have the extreme of the windblown styles
These women chose to adopt this style and wore it on a daily basis.
They were prepared to have a photograph taken and I have seen enough examples to confirm it was reletavely popular during the twenties.
I expect at the time they endured the critiscism and ridicule of the older generation.Nothing changes.

It must prove that in fashion terms a confident woman can get away with anything.

Personally I cannot see today's actresses in a "twenties" costume drama choosing to wear this style above the slicker bobbed styles available.

This is a distinctive twenties style----Not to be confused with a "bad hair day".
