How many variations can you make of the same 1910s hairdo? A lot apparently—so many that we can barely tell the difference between them!

A few weeks ago we wrote about a video that showed women’s popular hairstyles over the past 100 years. Included in that video was the popular up-do of the second decade of the 20th century. Little did we know however, that this same up-do had many variations that all look pretty much the same, save for some intricate details.

Recently, some photos surfaced that appear to have come from a hairstyle book, like those you might flip through at the salon while awaiting your turn. It seems like women a hundred years ago might have done the same kind of flipping, but instead of choosing a new hairdo, they chose from different variations of the same one. Can you spot the difference?

While many of these dos look really similar at first glance, closer examination shows that are pretty different in the end. If you were a woman in 1910, which one of these would you choose?
