100 Years of Beauty in Germany

My assistant Samantha found these videos from cut.com and brought them to my attention. The stylists, researchers and model go through 100 years of beauty styles in 1:35 minutes. It's 100% worth the watch! I can't decide what my favorite look is... I loved the 1920s and 1940s looks, but I also have to say the 2010s look is great too.

Ok... now that you've watched the 100 years of Beauty: Germany produced by cut.com, now you need to watch the 2 videos that explain the research behind the looks. I found these videos even more fascinating. The researcher, Christopher Chan explains why he chose certain looks for each decade. In this first video, he describes the looks from the 1910s to the 1940s and I think the most interesting is the reasoning behind the 1930s look, the pigtail braids.

In part II of the video series, he goes through the beauty looks from 1950-today. Again revealing what political, cultural and social trends led him to choose the looks. The best part of this video is seeing the differences in the looks between East and West Germany from the 1950s-1980s (and the 1980s is the most interesting of all!). 

So now let's hear from you! What was your favorite look? Did you think that there is a different look that would better represent a certain decade? Let's get the conversation going in the comments!
