Flappers of the 1920s were young women known for their energetic freedom, embracing a lifestyle viewed by many at the time as outrageous, immoral, or downright dangerous. Flappers pushed barriers to economic, political, and sexual freedom for women. They are now considered the first generation of independent American women.

The fabulous bobbed-cut hairstyle was made famous by Louise Brooks and many other flapper enthusiasts! Fashion pieces are shapeless flapper dresses and the cloche hat is very much on trend! It is often a serious requirement to follow steps to fit the head size and must be loose enough to frame a woman's face. The Lyrebird is represented as the flapper dance, mimicking the sounds of jazz music that was the go-to for all the flappers!
