Eye-Opening Video Shows 100 Years Of Iranian Beauty In One Minute

The Cut team is at it again. Known for their awesome time-lapse beauty trend videos, the crew has added a third instalment to their “100 Years of Beauty” series – with this current focus being on beauty trends in Iran.

In just over a minute, we see Iranian-American model Sabrina Sarajy transform throughout the decades as her makeup, hair, and occasional hijab reflect the fashionable beauty standards of Iranian women from the 1910s to the 2010s.

The reflection of the beauty trends in Iran not only provides an eye-opening insight into women’s beauty ideals over the last 10 decades, but also provides a glimpse into the history of Iran. This can be seen with the hijab ban in the 1930s, the revolution of 1979 and the more recent Green Revolution.
