I think these waves were called Marcel Waves also Marceling. Accounts vary about the invention of the style. Some reports ascribe the invention of the technique to Marcel Grateau (1852–1936), who invented it in 1872 (others say 1875). François Marcel Woelfflé, who later changed his name to François Marcel, was granted U.S. patents for implements for performing the technique: the first, U.S. patent 806386, entitled "Curling-Iron", was published in 1905, and the second, entitled "Hair-Waving Iron", for an electric version, under the name François Marcel, was published in 1918. There is also a 1936 obituary for Francois Marcel Grateau, with dates matching those of the first-named Marcel Grateau. Given the dates, and the coincidence of names, it is quite possible that they were all the same man.ReplyDelete
Marcelled hair was a popular style for women's hair in the 1920s, often in conjunction with a bob cut. For those women who had longer hair, it was common to tie the hair at the nape of the neck and pin it above the ear with a stylish hair pin or flower. One famous wearer was Josephine Baker. The doo-wop group the Marcels were named after the hairstyle.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marcelling
