1920s Mens Hairstyles - Side Swept Hair Style Pictures
I was going through some threads on the hairstyles of Boardwalk Empire, when I decided to post some 1920s men's hairstyles. Specifically, the side swept hairstyle.

The decade of the 1920s to the 1930s was a decade of hair slicking and of pomades. At the time, men would dress neatly and sharp in a very homogeneous fashion. This was true of the hairstyles for men, which were limited to flat hairstyles like the slicked back hair style, the middle part and the side swept. There were some mild variations from those hairstyles, but those 3 hairstyles were the backbone for men's hairstyles in the 1920s to 1930s.

Seeing how our forum is helping to popularize again the gentlemen's hairstyles and haircuts from many decades afar, I'd like to post below a set of pictures of 1920s inspires side swept hairstyles. If your hair length is at least a medium length and you have a good pomade at hand, you can achieve in a couple of minutes your own 1920s side swept hairstyle! Smile

The first set of pictures are of Boardwalk Empire, including pictures of the side swept styles of Steve Buscemi and Michael Shannon. In case you're wondering, Jimmy Darmody's hairstyle was the slicked back Undercut which we have covered in the link too.

Side swept hairstyles from the 1920s, 1930s and 2015.
Here are some more assorted pictures of the 1920s hairstyles for men. We have another 1950s men's hairstyles discussion with similar pomade swept hair styles from the first half of the 20th century.

While the old-school oil pomades are fine to use for the side swept, you can also use a water-based pomade like Layrite's water pomade with high shine for a very similar look without the petrolatum mess that the oil-based pomades leave. Smile

Awesome Post man! I always liked the old classic look. I feel it looks really sharp and clean. I can't wait until my layrite pomade comes in so I can't start styling my hair in different ways.
