This circa 1925 portrait of a young woman with a Marcel Wave hairstyle was taken by Portland photographer David Perry Evans. Marcel Waves were created with a heated curling iron, invented by French hair designer Francois Marcel in the 1870s.

Marcel waves were similar to finger waves in appearance; they were just created in different ways. Both became quite popular during the 1920s, when bobbed hair was all the rage, as a way to soften the look of shorter hair.
