1910s Hairstyle – The Recamier Coiffure

1910s hairstyle

For this 1910s hairstyle I followed this coiffure lesson for ‘the now fashionable Recamier style‘.

This article states that the fashionable woman no longer wears a huge pompadour hairstyle or an exaggerated swirl. It calls the Recamier the smartest hairstyle which every woman can make herself. Additionally, a hairpiece is no longer needed for this new style.

First a little pouf is made with the front hair. The pouf should be ‘soft’ and ‘fluffy’, and no pompadour roll should be used.

At the back of the head, small puffs are arranged by rolling strands of hair round two fingers. Then, each puff is securely pinned with hairpins.

I made three larger hair puffs, but the instructions also show pictures with more, smaller puffs.

If there’s enough hair left, two twisted hair strands can be laid round the puffs.

Here I’ve also added a pink satin ribbon as in this photograph. In this photograph, the lady is wearing a similar hairstyle with puffs and twisted strands. Here’s another photograph of a 1910s hairstyle. And in this fashion plate, the hair is decorated with a large flower.
