OLD HOUSE RESTORATION VIDEOS- Beauty & Fashion in the Early 1900’s

by | ALL AROUND, Life & times | 0 comments

FashionI have included 2 sets of videos on beauty & fashion in the early 1900’s because each presenter tells the stories in her own unique manner. Although I was somehow born (in 1949) having great familiarity with what people wore in the 1910’s through the 30’s, I was quite entertained by both of these women & consider myself to be more educated for having watched their videos.

Let me warn you that after watching these videos, you will have much less tolerance for Hollywood’s rendition of these periods. I find it terribly distracting to watch films in which the fashion & beauty are shown so inaccurately.

When the film, The Music Man was released in 1962, I was annoyed by their inaccurate portrayal of life in 1912. After years of studying family photos it made me very uncomfortable. I was 13 years old but I knew a bad fake when I saw one! Years later & further submersion in all things historic have not made me any more forgiving! C’mon Hollywood. You can do better!

LET’S LEARN ABOUT BEAUTY & FASHION IN THE EARLY 1900’s

THE ULTIMATE FASHION HISTORY: The 1910’s (18:9)
The Ultimate Fashion History

The teens, my favorite design period! The 1920’s video will play automatically at the end of this one, & the 30’s will follow.

After the 3 ULTIMATES play, another set of 3, beginning with Fashion History:1900-1920 (14:28) by the second presenter, Zoe Hong will follow. These 3 take a more teacherly look at fashion history. The videos in the same set, about the next 2 decades will play automatically.

1910s Makeup – Makeup of the Century (1:10)
Look Like Studios

A demonstration of how the woman of the teen’s put their faces on. Once again, the 20’s & the 30’s follow.

How Women of the 1910s-30s Waved Their Hair (10:38)
The LongHairedFlapper

The devices & methods used over the course of 30 years.

My mother (born in 1919) & I had great times watching Turner Classics, Antiques Roadshow & driving through historic neighborhoods. She marcelled my hair when I was 5 & drew Clara Bow lips with red lipstick on my little mouth. What fun we would have had watching these videos (See the complete Menu here.)  about beauty & fashion in the early 1900’s! Miss you, Mama.
