A One Minute Breakdown of 100 Years Of Beauty Trends And Pressures

Conceptions of beauty are in a constant state of flux. What’s fashionable and acceptable today is chucked out the window in the next decade for a new beauty mantra. The result is that every decade has its own unique look.

When you think of the 1920s your mind is filled with images of flappers with beautiful bobbed curls. Or the 1970’s which were dominated by Farrah Fawcett’s iconic feathered ‘do. Sure, some of those styles aren’t anything you’d want to repeat (sorry 1980’s) but each decades’ style has solidified itself in history.

The Cut broke down every beauty trend that women have rocked throughout the last 100 years in just a little over one minute with their incredible time lapse video.
