1911- Hairdressing for Young Girls

If anyone else grew up with the Anne of Green Gables books and movies and the Road To Avonlea series like I did, you might remember that girls could not wear their hair “up” until they were 18.  I remember being younger and standing in front of a mirror, trying to arrange my hair in the “Gibson Girl” style, but knowing full well that I was “too young” for those styles.  That’s why this little article hit a soft spot in my heart.

Here are lovely suggestions for young girl’s hairstyles from the May 1911 issue of McCall Magazine.  It also gives suggestions for appropriate ways to “do up” your hair once you reach 18.
