Hairstyles

Elegant styles.

Think of the long curling styles demonstrated by the movie stars of the time from Veronica Lake to Lauren Bacall.1940’s hairstyles are one of the most stylish hairstyles for women in the history of hair fashion. Perfectly styled and mostly voluminous hair was the trend throughout the decade.

The mid-1940’s had very complicated hairstyles, mostly to offset the the fabric rationing that impacted dresses. It was all about using creativity to look good in spite of it all. It worked!

Hairstyles that were popular during the forties were the peek-a-boo bang, the top reverse roll, pin curls, side rolls, the up do, victory rolls, and even the pompadour. Hey, no one said this was going to be easy! It takes patience and practice, but the result is very flattering and ultra-glamorous.
