The 19 Most Important Women's Hairstyles Of The '90s

Emmy DE * Giuseppe Zanotti

Think Chinese foot binding was "weird" ? Today's shoes are not much better... Women are still hobbled and have many more health problems as a result. I'm guilty too, but can all us women agree that extreme heels are not the answer?

1914- Many Edwardian hairstyles involved padding. The crescent shaped padding for a Low Pompadour went from ear to ear over the top of the wearers head. The hair was taken from the forehead hairline straight over the pad to the back where it was retained by whatever method the wearer chose. These methods included a bun, cottage loaf , coils or simply tied. It was the front appearance which mattered most. Women who wore a full Pompadour hairstyle for formal occasions could put their hair in a Low Pompadour for daily wear.
