"Structured, curly locks were all the rage during the 1910's. In this picture, I've played up this feminine charm of curly hair to create lively, youthful locks, while maintaining a hint of aged mystique. This property is similar to the fashion of the 1910's; rich in subtle orientalism , generously detailed, yet conservative."
The Illustrator: Shefale Desai
“Iconic hairstyles of the 1920’s would be incomplete without the ornate headgears. Keeping that in mind, I created my illustrations highlighting the details of the hair and the hair accessories. I’ve tried to adapt a more Egyptian style to the illustration by using side-faces as I felt that would enhance the hairstyles. The eyes have been inspired by the kind of make up done back in the day to get the exaggerated look right.”
The Illustrator: Satwik Gade
“The illustration for the 1930's look is derived from the Art Deco style of the 1930's that saw focus shifting to geometric shapes and pastel colours.”

“Decided to go with the victory rolls as I love the idea that the trend began with women being inspired by the emissions billowing from fighter jets. Patriotism has always struck me as a bizarre, mostly empty concept that seems to enforce rabid love for a piece of land quite arbitrarily, and the idea that people thought doing their hair would support the war effort (or that a war effort is something that needs to be supported in the first place) was quite funny to me.”
The Illustrator: Ishan Rathod
“I always wanted to colour all the 1950 beauties, it was indeed a very glamorous and pop colour decade but most of the pictures are black-and-white. I wanted to portray their actual vibrant life through those pop colours...which suits the decade best!”
The Illustrator: Devarshi Gohil
"The 1960's show a 'big' change in the way women styles their hair. The first half of the Sixties resembled the Fifties. Conservative, ladylike, proper. The bouffants and structured bobs. The second half of the Sixties begins quietly. But the dynamic social changes sweeping the world would soon manifest themselves in fashion and hair. A new freedom with longer lengths of waves and super short pixies."
The Illustrator: Yashasvi Mathis
“Hair styles that were big those days - centre parting, long sleek hair, Shags, voluminous waves and curls with the use of abundant hairspray. Fringes with long, straight/ wavy hair (like Nico), Androgynous haircuts with flicks too. I used gouache and water colours to make these illustrations.”
The Illustrator: Swayampravo Dasgupta
“For this project I used a "utilitarian" vector method to give shape, form and colours to the work, which I believe makes for a slide between an 80's-pixelated-disco-ish motif and the simple look I have tried to achieve. I have infused fine art, a flat palette, conservatively styled graphics and basic design principles for the same purpose. My illustration style would have better suited the 60s hairstyles, but I wanted to take on this challenge. I had to find the right method of portraying my shapes to give off enough meaning while not compromising on the simplicity of the overall look.”
The Illustrator: Devarshi Gohil
" The 1980's hair had one moto - "the bigger the better." From exaggerated mullets to permed and teased waves which were accentuated by the use of scrunchies and hairbands. Hairspray was everyone's best friend and a side pony tail was your ticket to being one of the cool kids in school. A time when eccentricity was highly appreciated. "
The Illustrator: Rohan Jha
“The 90's were ruled by the grunge movement and Kurt Cobain was the poster boy of the genre while on the other side of the coast, the indie band Oasis was taking over. The busts are a symbol of persevering their hair intact through the ages to come.”
The Illustrator: Sumedha Sah
“Women are the subjects of my illustration and their various personalities and characteristics are flaunted by their diverse hairstyles. The women of the 21st century come forward as confident and individualistic in their disposition, ready to carve a new way for females all around the world.”
