The Flapper era started off roaring! The popular look of the Flapper was called "comme le garcon" meaning "like the boy". The skirts were straight, short and the hair was even shockingly shorter.
Short hair was a big deal since nice girls kept their hair long, almost as a show of virginity and maidenhood. For a young woman to chop her hair short was admitting she had turned to the Dark Side and done the carnal deed. But these young gals took it step further than just a boyish haircut and late night partying; they began lighting up their cigarettes and smoking in public—this was something no "lady" did.
