How did women's beauty evolve from Roaring Twenties flapper to #selfie-ready millenial? Long answer: ain't nobody got time for that. Short answer: A new YouTube video that shows how hair and beauty trends have changed over 100 years in one awe-inspiring minute. Throughout the video, one woman gets a different makeover inspired by each decade, think Edwardian curls and rosy cheeks in 1910, a tousled bob and cupid's bow in 1920, finger waves and a bright red lip in 1930, and so on. The video culminates with the woman, all dolled up with bombshell hair and fake eyelashes, snapping #selfies on her cell phone. Take that as you will. Enjoy the 60-second clip, below:
