Bernice Bobs Her Hair
Bernice Bobs Her Hair. Francis Scott Fitzgerald. Bernice is a wealthy young Wisconsin and went to her aunt's house to visit her cousin Marjorie. However, it was difficult for the couple to get in touch, and Bernice soon discovered that her cousin thought she was obstructing her social life. Bernice does not perform at parties, so with the help of her cousin she becomes a real social girl. Soon she began dancing and flirting, often suggesting that she had a plan to shave her head — a sign of then-liberating 'women. However, as Bernice integrates deeper into her new lifestyle, the fickle nature of the social scene becomes increasingly clear. F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote "Bernice Bobs Her Hair" based on the letters he wrote to his sister. These letters offer similar advice on how to become a more attractive social girl. It was first printed in the Saturday Evening Post in 1920.
