1920s



                                               








This was the decade of excitement and women held strong participation. In 1921, the year of the first commercial radio broadcast, women were granted the right to vote in the USA. King Tut's tomb was found in 1922 setting off a world-wide ancient Egypt love affair that manifested in many areas, including women's fashions especially hats. By 1925, when the Charleston was invented, flapper fashions hit the scene. It was the year of Hitler's Mein Kampf and the Scopes Monkey Trial. In 1926, the year A.A. Milne published Winnie-the-Pooh and the year Harry Houdini died, a woman swam the English channel.



The following year the first talking movie was released, The Jazz Singer with Al Jolson. Charles Lindbergh flew solo across the Atlantic Ocean. 1928 was a year of firsts, the first Annual Academy Awards, the first Mickey Mouse cartoon, and the first bubble blown from bubblegum. The decade ended on an optimistic hope, with the first car radio invented, but ended in disaster with the St. Valentine's Day Massacre and the Stock Market crash. The decade was fast and furious and life would never be the same afterwards. This was a decade for bobbed hair and smoking in public, not to mention showing your knees. Body styles were thin and curveless with streamlined hats and hairstyles. The hair came off and styles were short or pulled back with ringlets on the forehead and ears.

The bobbed hair of 1922 and beyond was scandalous, because bob-haired women often smoked. The style itself was blamed for loose morality, the breakdown of the family, and was banned from the Royal Court of Queen Mary. The hair dryer was invented, patterned after the vacuum cleaner, to be followed eventually by the blow dryer. 15hqql.
