Pageboy Hairstyles - Our Top 20
Be my boy: The pageboy is back
It made history and was downright frowned upon in its early days: in the 1920s, women with pageboy heads were considered revolutionary, unfeminine and, of course, emancipated! No wonder. The short-haired classic among women's hairstyles with its straight fringe and meticulously precise cut stood out from the norm simply because of its hair length. And it freed women from many of the complicated updos and braided hairstyles that were commonplace at the time. Today, the pageboy head is experiencing a brilliant revival and has virtually reinvented itself.
News from the pageboy
Is the good old pageboy back in fashion? That's what it looks like - and not only at the current fashion shows, where a number of models have already been seen with pageboy heads. But the pageboy of yesteryear has become a trendy hairstyle must-have that no longer has much in common with the classic "page boy cut" of yesteryear. While it was first remade in the 1960s by Vidal Sassoon as the "Five Point Cut" - an extremely stylish, geometric cut that demands top performance from every hairdresser - today's pageboy head is much less edgy and presents itself with a feminine touch.
Pagen head 2.0: more style, more style
What still distinguishes the pageboy head today is its highly accurate cut. Not a single hair must be in the way, the look must be perfect and appear to be all of a piece. Another typical feature of the pageboy is the deep fringe, which is usually cut straight. The very high ponycut is new, and asymmetries are also allowed and even desired nowadays. Tiered pageboy head interpretations are also in vogue and put the wearer in the limelight in a particularly charming way.
A lot is also possible when it comes to length. While the typical pageboy head usually ends at chin height and in a straight line, a wide variety of variations are in vogue today. For example, the asymmetrical pageboy head that runs down the nape of the neck. Ideal for medium-length hair - and a prominent example of this was Victoria Beckham. And when it comes to fringes, nothing is the same any more: the strict A-line has got competition and made way for the geometric pony cut, the tiered version as well as the split version. This is particularly beneficial for women who love this style but, thanks to their fine hair, don't have the ideal volume for the classically thick, straight fringe.
Shape and colour in the pageboy head
Bobbed hairstyles suit almost every woman. Especially since variations of the classic hairstyle are in. Whether thick hair, fine hair, wavy or straight: the pageboy head is the haircut that can be optimally adapted to every hair structure. Incidentally, the age of the wearer doesn't matter either, because the pageboy head is absolutely timeless. When it comes to colour, you can also go a little more colourful today! Whether bright red, deep black or even in the trendy pastel shades: thanks to its reduced elegance, the pageboy head teaches all colours to shine! If it is to be streaked, experts advise using the same colour family so as not to rob the pageboy head of its clean look. Need a little more inspiration?
