Go Vintage: 32 Men’s Hairstyles From 1920’s

1920s was the era of change for women and simplicity for men.  1920s hairstyles for men didn’t differ much from what we see nowadays. The same undercuts or slicked back hair, as well as military style and Ivy league.

There was also a place for side parts and ocean waves. The latter is the hairstyle often worn by African men. Special hairbrushes and hair gel created an impression of waves.
