A New Coiffure from 1917 - Hairdressing Instructions


A New Coiffure from 1917 - the finished style

This new coiffure can be adopted even by the woman who has but little hair. A small hair frame and fancy comb or slide will be required. First of all, it is necessary that the hair should be waved; if this is not done by a hairdresser, the easiest manner is to put it up overnight in hair-wavers.
