1940's Women's Hairstyle

This is such a charming and typical hairstyle worn by women during the decade of the 1940's.

This gal has short dark hair with a deep side part and super short bangs that are rolled under and cut fairly straight across. The fullness is concentrated on the sides rather than the top which is pretty flat. Rollers placed at night in rows helped to create a style such as this. Women typically slept with those hard and uncomfortable accessories in an effort to look glamorous and feminine. This photo was taken around the WWII era and is in black and white. The setting is in the bathroom with a retro sink.
