The Great Gatsby is a novel, and now a film, set in the roaring 1920s – a time of fabulous fashion and exquisite hairstyles. Now, 90 years on, that fashion and those hairstyles are coming back into fashion, probably thanks to the film. Whether you have short or long hair, there’s a Great Gatsby hairstyle to suit you and although a lot 0f the hairstyles are best suited to wavy hair, making it easier to mould the curls, the same look can be achieved with straight hair – it may just involve slightly more work or hairspray.
So here we look at some of the best 1920s-inspired hairstyles and hairpieces:
This diamanté spider web hairpiece combined with a classic messy bun is elegant and perfect for an exquisite event or party.
If you’ve got short hair, this beautiful lace headpiece combined with the silk flower could suit you down to a tee. Consider this look if you’re a bride wanting something just that little bit different on your wedding day.
The 1920s look can be achieved by wearing something as simple as this fine headband with diamante flower attached. Add a few curls to your shoulder length hair and you’ve got the look.
If you’ve got long wavy hair then give this intricate hairstyle a go. Perfectly suited for a bride or bridesmaids, the simple gold hairpiece adds a touch of the Great Gatsby.
Feathers and diamonds are a beautiful combination and this Great Gatsby headpiece is no exception. Wear this as pictured below or with a short bob haircut for that 1920s look.
