Odd hair style


This is a nice derriere shot, but the hair style baffles me.

  1. Nice musculature. You are right about the hair. Is that background some sort of cotton candy? It doesn't look like it's painted.

    1. Theaters and photo studios in those days had dropdown canvas painted backdrops for a variety of scenes. We might be seeing part of a sky.

  2. Yes, an interesting hair style but I must admit that my eye was drawn to his impressive physique. Nice butt and very good musculature.

  3. At first glance, the hairstyle is from the early 1920s. Hair started to get shorter for men in the 1890s, but the cropped sides started to appear in WWI, when hair became very short to avoid the vermin in the trenches - known on the Allied side of the war as the "Prussian Cut". The cropped sides persisted, but the war over, hair was longer on the top, and a centre parting was very modish. Men's hairstyles have, in fact, been historically longer than shorter, but from the 17th to the 19th centuries, wigs were worn and a man's hair was cropped very short to avoid lice. As with women's skirt lengths tend to reflect economic bust and boom, men's hair length tends to pivot from short to long - short during periods of social conservatism, long during more libertarian times.

    1. I haven't found any more, but will keep looking. That hairdo should be easy to spot.
