Clara Bows Hair ~ A Little Sassy, A Little Seductive For 1930
The name Clara Bow is generally the first to come to almost anyone’s mind when they think of silent movie stars. Of course, Clara is best known for her fabulous flapper roles.
Although always groomed beautifully, there was something sassy and more than slightly seductive in Clara’s style. Clara Bow like many women of that time opted for a Bob hairstyle, however, Clara being an individual, she made sure to personalize her look.
Clara Bows hair was a combination of a short and wavy hairstyle with dramatic make-up blended together perfectly to form a look that is still being copied to this day.
Clara chose to wear her Bob hairstyle pushed off of her forehead with waves curved around her head.
Often, Clara was seen with small sections of her hair on her cheek or forehead shaped into curls. Clara typically styled her Bob with finger waves, which were also popular in the thirties.
There were numerous ways to achieve these waves, but Clara stuck with what she knew flattered her most. The flapper, jazzy look was what Clara Bow favored when it came to cosmetics. If Clara Bow was heading out on the town, you can be sure that the first thing she took care of was her eyebrows.
It was essential that her brows were thin and extended to provide the right flair. This was of course followed by dramatic, eye make-up that was dark and smudged to perfection.
A dusting of facial powder with a light sweeping of blusher added the necessary accompanying touches. Clara’s look would not have been complete without paying special attention to her lips. She always wore her lipstick in ‘cupid bows’ that left her with the seductive bee stung look that she was famous for.
