The Allure of the Hula Girl

Hawaiian gifts

The hula girl became a part of popular culture during the vaudeville era during the teens and 1920s. During this time Hawaiians began to travel, perform hula and give the world a glimpse of Hawaiian tradition,culture and costume. World War II brought servicemen to Hawaii and they sent hula dolls, hula girl costumes and postcards back to the states.These images of exotic beauties sparked the imagination of the world.Sometimes portrayed as innocent, sometimes as a sexy siren, the hula girl's swaying hips and golden skin appeared in advertising, tiki mugs,menus, matchbooks and postcards.
