The classic Gibson girl. Is it any wonder that this look has lasted for hundreds of years as an ideal of feminine beauty?

A modern Gibson Girl hairstyle. Gibson Girls were considered the "ideal women" of the early 1900's and were characterized by their extravagant hairstyles and tiny waistlines. I would just like to say that this hairstyle is sick. It's elegant, dramatic, and just plain fierce.

The early 1900s Gibson Girl was the first national beauty standard for American women. Her neck was thin and her hair piled high upon her head in the contemporary bouffant, pompadour, and chignon ("waterfall of curls") fashions. The statuesque, narrow-waisted ideal feminine figure was portrayed as being at ease and stylish. She was a member of upper class society, always perfectly dressed in the latest fashionable attire appropriate for the place and time of day.
