Great Hair Do's - I want them all !!!

I am a very firm believer in hair and make-up not being the finishing touch to an outfit. For historical dressing, it is IMPERATIVE that your hair and make up reflects the era, infact, to me it is almost more important than the outfit. Let me try to explain.......

If I put on a vintage 1930's evening dress and left my hair 'fashionably' toussled and my make up reflective of today's styles, what do I have? A look that might be sucessful on the red carpet of a film premiere, but it's just NOT vintage.

However, if I put on a reproduction dress, or, as in a previous outfit post of mine, some brand new from Target white skinny jeans and a navy and cream stripped top, but do my hair in a beehive with ponytail and 1960's heavy eyes and nude lips and what do I have? A look that screams 1960's, even if the clothing is brand spanking new.

Do you see what I mean? If you want to really do an era, you have to get your hair and make up right....and it's not that hard really....just attend one of the Lindy Charm School sessions for some tips and tricks, or simply pay attention to photographs and movies from the era you love and practise practise practise - it's all good fun !!!

Here are some sensational hairstyle from different era's that I just love - I want to try them all at some stage in my life ! What look is your favourite ??

Nineteen Twenties Bob.......

Nineteen Thirties Waves.........

Nineteen Fourties rolls...........

Classic Nineteen Fifties Do's.......

Structured Nineteen Sixties styles......


  1. Oh, I love the 1930s waves and the 1950s classic looks!

  2. My hair is the bane of my life, I tell you.

  3. I love the hairstyles before they look like barbies really :)

  4. I agree, it completes the whole look. I am having a hair chrisis at the moment- I am torn between the cute betty bangs and grownin my hair long, or chopping it off a-la Elizabeth Taylor style. Oh, it's a hard life! ;)
