Double tap if you learned something new? 👏🏽
🦋Traditional Mexican hairstyles of the time tend more towards large braids tied up on top of their head, or the poufy Edwardian styles worn by women all over Western culture; Leia’s buns are big and poufy, but they’re not nor are they at all braids. When would revolutionaries find the time to put your hair up in two ridiculous buns, which are impossible, even with modern state-of-the-art hair product technology to carry for any length of time, if indeed you manage to tame your hair enough to play along to begin with.” Fast-forward 20 years, however, and you get something that’s a little bit closer: in those deeply relieved, freewheeling years following World War I, womenyoung women, particularly who didn’t elect to lop off their hair still had myriad choices as to how to style it. This included, but was certainly not limited to, the “earphone” style, in which two braids were coiled into buns at either side of the head, usually over the ears, which made them resemble the headphones telegraph and telephone operators wore at the time Less charmingly, they were also sometimes referred to as “cootie garages” on account of the fact that they were supposed to be little shelters for lice. By the middle of the 1920s, the look was all but over fully ceding the way to the bob which by then, in all its many incarnations the Dutch Boy, the daring Eton Crop, Marcel waves had been embraced by virtually everyone, from young flappers to older women.
Though Leia’s style of bun laid fairly dormant over the next 50 or so years, Heilemann points out that it did get a bit of play in the 1955 film The Dam Busters, the remarkable true story of the R“bouncing bombs” of WWII; in the movie, they were worn on the head of scientist Barnes Wallis’ . Since then, the hairstyle has largely remained the province of the sci-fi genre. If you loved this double tap ! #hairblogger #mua #spanishgirl #mexicanstyle #spanishhair
