Today's hair-feather trend was also big in the '70s, but it has roots much further back to the Roaring Twenties, during the birth of the flapper. Flappers presented a fashion-forward imag, taking pride in being cutting-edge - sporting shorter hair cuts, unconventional dresses, and feathered hair accessories. While the term 'flapper' has different meanings, the origin of the word 'flapper' refers to a young bird learning to fly. It is believed flappers of the 1920s wore feather accessories to represent this journey - their metaphorical 'flight' into womanhood.
