Downton Abbey, Bobbed Hair At Last! -  2015

Collage by helenoppenheim.com

At last! A bobbed haircut has arrived at Downtown Abbey, shown on on PBS-TV last night. Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) went to her hairdresser, top left, and did it. Love all the wonderful waves but it is time for the ’20s to come roaring in and hair fashion to make its statement, along with all the beautiful hair jewelry and hats, some of which are shown here from the ITV hit series which started  in the Edwardian era with such amazing meticulously researched and inspirational fashions.  So, who is next? Lady Edith. Will she bob?  Or, more likely, it will be Lady Rose. Or will someone downstairs take the step? No spoilers please from the UK, who have seen the series. We in America are still on Series 5.

    So beautifully done, finally! Wonder why they took so long to do the era’s hair correct. I bet the actors did not want to bob their hair.
    Great collage of timeless hair Helen.

      Thanks Lois. I suspect they use a lot of wigs on Downton and I know the series is researched meticulously so there must be another reason the bob took so long to arrive.
