It was Irene Cnstlc at the time of
her dancing fame who first Introduced
this cut in Anxrlc.i Iter coiffure il
lustrates the effect of bobbed hair
when dressed for enlnar w-ar. It
seems to be worn to advantage better
with an evening gown than anything
else, particularly i one has an ani
mated expression. In this case the
hair has been parted slightly on OPS
side and combed back, so that it
droops slightly on the forehead To
keep it in place a fancy bandeau is
used. Wcll-clefincd loose curls are
arranged all around the head, which
lends a softening effect to the features.

Marlon Davies illustrates how well
formed features, a full face and plump
neck are set off by the bob. In this
case the hair Is parted on one B.di- ;:i !
combed over the top of the head soj
that It falls naturallv without the nec-j
esslcy of keeping it in place with a
bandeau The hair l.s not nllow.-.l to
grow too long, the cans being barely
eovered and th loose curls falling
gracefully In place.
