Woman

 

To start with, hairstyles were Quite close to the head with fingerwaves parted in the middle or to the side. People in the 1930's liked volume and waves (for a more softer look) with hair pulled back into an array of small curls on the neckline which was secured with bobby or hairpins. Also large brimmed hats and other small hats were worn, in 1936 hats with feathers were very important. Another type of wave is the saucer wave which began in the front and became a circle around the head. To end with, sculptor waves begin with a center or half part ending with a cluster of round pin curls that would circle the ears.
