    Flappers, 1920s new style. 'Flappers were a "new breed" of young Western women in the 1920s who wore short skirts, bobbed their hair, listened to jazz, and flaunted their disdain for what was then considered acceptable behavior. Flappers were seen as brash for wearing excessive makeup, drinking, treating sex in a casual manner, smoking, driving automobiles, and otherwise flouting social and sexual norms. Flappers had their origins in the liberal period of the Roaring Twenties, the social, political turbulence and increased transatlantic cultural exchange that followed the end of World War I, as well as the export of American jazz culture to Europe' (wikipedia)

During the time of the 20's-30's women were becoming liberated to do things out of the social norm. Women often did this through thier fashion. A bold fashion statment women made in this time was cutting off thier hair.Women who cut their hair view it as shedding the traditional symbol of femininity and stepping into a new role of self-assertion and independence.
