Great hair, Gatsby style.

GatsbyScreen Shot 2013-04-18 at 11.37.09 AMOne of my favorite books of all time, The Great Gatsby has been made into a movie! I don’t know if I will go see it, but I sure do love making roaring 20’s inspired hairstyles.

Over the last year on HTHG, I have used many different eras as style inspiration for DIY hairstyles. Today on HTHG I am celebrating hair during the depression era, from the elite flapper girls to the dust bowl pioneers. For Art Nouveau inspired hairstyles, check out this post.

Here are links to tutorials for each of the looks on the above photo collage……..Starting at the top of vertical column 1……

Which one is your favorite? I always feel so feminine and chic when tressed in 1920’s era hair. I love the finger waves.

  1. Love these! I’ve been wearing a lot of braided updos lately and am ready to change it up a bit. The Dorothea bun and art nouveau styles are calling my name I think.

  2. All of those styles are so CUTE! Though I’m not all that sure about the Gatsby movie. This newest one is the fifth one made so far, so I’m not all that excited by it.
