Great Gatsby Hairstyles

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:
