Left to right:
Two pictures of my mother: as a school girl in 1918, and a year or two later, with different ways of wearing a big flashy bow.
My mother in her early twenties
My mother in 1928, and in 1931. Her hair has come down over her ears, not such pretty styles in my opinion. The one on the left is probably a 'shingle', or even a 'bingle', which was a cross between a bob and a shingle!
Two rather prim styles from the 1920-30s: my mother's sister with rather intriguing little curls in front of the ears. And a friend of the family with 'earphones' - or plaits at the side, wound round to cover the ears.
