Hairstyles of the 1920's and 1930's and how to recreate them, with particular reference to "the Bob" hair style
If your customer's hair is dressed in the most desirable manner, note every detail precisely before proceeding. The particular way she wears her hair will not only determine the style in which it is to be dressed, but will to some extent also determine the method of cutting.
Where you are going to change a hairdress, visualize the finished hair fashion before you begin. Keep this mental picture vividly in mind. It's really great fun to mentally change the appearance of people. If you have never done this before, start doing it today. You really can do it if you will only try.
Begin now to study the head of each patron. Do not give her just a hair cut or a wave, such as two waves on one side, perhaps three or five on the other. Visualize a perfect, finished coiffure which will have lines and beauty to accentuate her natural charm. Then do your work expertly to make this mental picture a living reality. You will have ample reason to be proud of your work. Your patrons will be grateful and wilting to pay a premium for such special service. They will tell their friends and neighbors about what you can do for them.
The illustrations and instructions which follow have been selected to help you master the intricacies of individual hair cutting and styling. Anything worth while takes time to learn and to do.
