Pageboy Hairstyles

If you are looking for pageboy hairstyles, check out this gallery.

Not every one knows the pageboy hairstyle, but I think most of you have seen this elegant hair style before. The pageboy (or page boy) is a hairstyle named after what was believed to be the haircut of an English page boy. A traditional pageboy is a woman’s hair style with the hair reaching the shoulder and rolled under the ends. Often there is a fringe (bangs) in the front. This style was popular in the 1950s and 1960s. The pageboy was popularized by film actresses who sported it for fashionable look. The name is derived from the hairstyle adopted by pageboys in England in the good old days. From film actresses the hair style came on to fashionable women because it was very appealing to women in general. Present day pageboy is designed for various types of hair.

A well cut pageboy is easy to maintain, and in the 1950s it was an edgy, stylish look. The pageboy haircut is similar to a long bob hairstyle. A pageboy hairstyle is a haircut which is designed for straight, medium to short length hair. In the fifties the pageboy generally stopped above the shoulders but later renditions saw the hair cut to just below the ear, where it curls under; in a reverse pageboy, the hair is curled outwards. Many hairstylists can make a pageboy and explain how it is maintained. This look suits a variety of face and body types. A pageboy flip has the bottom reversed to curl outward.

    First off, I should say I have really thin hair. My face shape is round. I’ve had it long (down to my hips) and I’ve had it short (angled bob). Right now it’s about shoulder length. It takes forever to grow out. I want something different. It’s just straight with small layers around my face. I was growing it out, but like I said it takes forever to grow and I’m at this point where it looks bad all the time no matter what.

    Here’s a few photos of the most recent types of hairstyles I’ve had.

    So I’m really sick of my hair and I want a new hairstyle that will look stylish and cool.

    My hair is light brown, long (about three inches past my shoulders) and wavy. I have some longish side swept bangs at the front and layers that are too long and make my hair poof out at the wrong spot.

    I don’t want to dye my hair or get it cut super short. Just something different would be nice.

    So if anyone knows of any websites or particular hairstyles that you love, can you please either post a link or describe them to me?

    Come on guys, this is easy points right here ;)

    Well, I’m from South Africa and we must wear a uniform. The school is very strict and we may not have a fringe that is longer than your eyebrow, so, I need a hairstyle without a fringe, that will look nice. And with straightened hair. Thanks!
    Luv ya’ll!

    and i hate it nd its white! and a bit dated.

    However, my hair is this legnth because i was growing it from a awful razord hairstyle and it would be ideal if my hair were long again.

    On the other hand, i’ve seen a bob i like which is short than my hair now, and would love to get it, but i dont want to not like it and be back to square one. and i dont want to grow it and get bored of it again?

    Ok I am asking this again, because I didnt reallly get many answers in the last one. Im considering the possibility of shorter in the future, im not saying I dont like current hairstyle Im just open to experimenting. I know my hairs already short but I mean like possible crop or slightly longer.

    Me and a few friends are going out to dinner, and im not sure what a good hairstyle would be, since this is a dressy casual event.
    I have long, layered hair(3-4 inches below the shoulders) with a side bang and I’m 15.
    By the way, i don’t have time to get a haircut.
