Some styles never go out of fashion; the 1920s inspired look is one. Use our collection of beautiful 1920s hair accessories, such as headbands, clips and combs, to create a sophisticated look for parties, events and evenings out.

Old school glamour

This is a style that conjures up old school Hollywood glamour and will forever be associated with The Great Gatsby. The epitome of the jazz age with Daisy Buchanan as the ultimate flapper. The 1920s saw the trend for short hair take off, with many women taking the plunge and chopping off their locks to make a social as well as a fashion statement.

Witness Lady Mary in series five of Downton Abbey as she swapped her traditional long waves for a slick, modern bob. But this is a look that can work on any hair length. The classic flapper-style bob can be achieved by tucking longer hair under and pinning it. You can also twist long hair into a bun or chignon and accessorise. Or let it fall loose over your shoulder with a 1920s style hair comb to hold it in place.
