100 Years of Changing Beauty, Makeup, and Hairstyles in 1 Minute

Over the past century, ideas of beauty, hairstyles, and makeup trends have changed drastically. Seattle-based creative agency Cut demonstrate this in their short timelapse video 100 Years of Beauty in 1 Minute, in which they condense the evolving aesthetics of the years from 1910 to 2010 in one fascinating minute.

Looks vary wildly from decade to decade, as shown by the curled bob of 1920, the bombshell hair and red lips of 1950, frizzled hairspray nest of 1980, and the natural-looking, dewy makeup of 2010. In addition to the visual traits of the time, the model also embodies the spirit of the decade through facial expressions and poses, successfully portraying quirks like the attitude and sass of the ’90s woman to the selfie-obsessed female of today.
