This is another of Tulla’s photos from an antique shop.
This beautiful young lady has finger waves in her hair. Finger waves are shaped with your fingers and a comb while your hair is wet. Some styling gel helps.
She is wearing a frock that has a tier…the fabric must have flowed when she walked.
This photo was most likely taken in the late 1920’s or early 1930’s. I could not find information on the New Hennepin Studio in Minneapolis Minnesota. There are no other markings of any kind on the photo.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
*** Recently when I got my hair cut and styled they asked me how I wanted it styled..I replied “In finger waves.” She replied “No one has ever asked for them before..but I can give it a whirl.”
Update from Futura:
this photo dates to 1929 or, less likely, 1930.... throughout much of the 1920s, fashion dictated a long, straight, tubular silhouette....by the middle of 1928, the waistline began to creep upward and skirts began to hug the hips ever so gently. While hemlines remained relatively short, panels of fabric were added to the sides or back of skirts to create the illusion of length, all this created a very breezy, feminine form. I like to think of 1928 - 1930 as the era when the flapper grew into a lady.
