HAIRitage: Josephine Baker

Josephine Baker

When it comes to iconic women from head to toe, you must discuss Josephine Baker. Always jazzy, never trashy, she was the epitome of a flapper style.

The vintage glamour star, who made her way from dirt poor to international performer, gave 20s-style a new swag and is still emulated today by stars, including Rihanna. Her short tresses inspired many of us to chop our hair off and gel down our coifs to perfect flat curls on our faces.

June 3 marked what would’ve been her 108th birthday. From her infamous banana outfit to her short locs, Ms. Baker was as iconic then as she is today. Take a look at some of her best styles from years past.
