2. Boyish Bob

When women made the choice to chop off their previously long hair into a bob, it was more than just an act of liberation. It meant that you could do anything with your hair; an act that men took far too much liberty with. Starlets like Gloria Swanson were the poster girls for more boyish haircuts, inspiring women young and old to rush to the salon to make the cut. This boyish style soared in popularity and edged in a new, now-iconic style of fashion: the flappers.
