In LaLa Films’s latest video, they take us back to 1910 and show us what hair and makeup looked like in the Dominican Republic. That volume and glowing skin carries all through today, but which is your favorite?

In the 1910s, headwraps were essential. This accentuated the face and gave the spotlight to those high cheekbones ✨.

That bone structure tho.

The 1920s made way for a super sophisticated look.

Cuter than the huge glasses hipsters are wearing today.

Fast-forward to the 1930s and gothic makeup became a huge trend.

So glam.

10 years later, Dominicanas went back to a more natural look with less makeup and semi-relaxed hair.

Braid goals.

In the hippie era of the 70s Dominicans slayed the soft curls and blue shadow.

Because it looks better against olive skin, don’t you agree?

The curls made for perfect volume.

We all remember the two bangs, this trend even carried over to the Dominican Republic. Super cute against the pastel makeup palette.

Only they could pull off green shadow and bright pink lips.

Vampy lips and straight locks are still a favorite everywhere today. So trendy.

It’s said that older siblings tend to feel more anxious with responsibility, where the youngest can be more relaxed and light-hearted.

You grow up to be pretty tough.

Your parents likely just lumped you in with the older kids and you didn’t even know what they were talking about anyways.

You know all the cool stuff before your friends.
