In culture, the Roaring Twenties saw women becoming liberated — voting, shortening their skirts, bobbing their hair, and enjoying nightlife in jazz clubs and speakeasies.
In beauty, the Roaring Twenties launched modern cosmetology. When women began getting their hair bobbed, only barbers could perform an accurate blunt cut. Hairdressers had to either step up their skills, or pack up their scissors. They responded not only by rising to the occasion, but introducing the vibrant, creative and passionate salon industry we know today.
