This photo of a 1940's woman shows us a nice example of an updo perfect for short hair and it has an attractive vintage appeal.
The top is randomly curled which makes the bangs look super short and full of volume. The sides are slicked back with pomade and attached in the back with bobby pins. There is just a fringe of hair on the neck that can be seen from the front. She is wearing a satin black dress with gathered sleeves. Her nails are neatly polished.
