Hair styling during the teens was defined
by voluminous sihouttes shaped softly around the face.
Hair pieces were used to create the necessary volume
and false braids and switches were used
to adorn the more intricate styles.
Before the permanent and curling iron,
there was the Marcel wave. Similar in concept to the curling iron,
the Marcel iron was heated and used to crimp hair into waves.
The waves would add texture and interest
to the intricate styles employed during this decade.
