Alright dolls, this section’s for you. To capture the look of a 20’s screen siren or fabulous flapper, photos are a helpful starting point. Famous stars of the time included Greta Garbo, Louise Brooks, Marion Davies and Clara Bow (Marion and Clara pictured below). These ladies usually went for several trends at the same time, both in their films and out on the town. Pencil-thin brows, lush lashes, smokey eyes and statement lips with the cupid’s bow emphasized rounded out the make-up look, while hair was usually set in finger waves or cut in a sleek bob. Waves or faux bobs for long-haired dames as well as these dramatic make-up looks (including false lashes!) can sometimes be difficult to achieve at home, so take advantage of the discount and treat yourself to an afternoon at the salon for the event. DK carries hair products from Bumble and bumble, Kerastase and Shu Uemura and make-up from Becca Cosmetics (pictured below) so you’re certain to have the best of EVERYTHING to get glam.
As for the fellas, although there may not be as much variety to the hair looks of the time, you’ll be able to pull off a statement style with more ease. Head in to DK for a trim or cut the day of and they can easily mold your hair into a sleek 20’s style like Rudolph Valentino – jungle cat accessory is optional. For more on Valentino, tune in next season at Minnesota Opera in for an opera based on his life!
If you’re game to try his look at home, Bumble and bumble’s Gellac or Bb Gel will be helpful. Apply generously to damp hair and comb back or off to the side. The more product the better, since it will keep the style from being mussed up by your fedora.
