1950s Girl

This young gal has naturally wavy and thick hair. The length is short and hits just below the ears. Her bangs are so neatly and perfectly cut into an arch, that one would realize that she obviously went to visit the hairdresser to get them shaped. After all, this was a time when many moms did the trimming at home. The sides are curled under but kind of have a mind of their own. She is wearing an eyelet dress that has puff sleeves.

Here we have a charming photo from the early 1950's of two young men probably brothers looking rather dashing in their period clothes.

Brothers of the 1950's

They both have wavy hair that is short on the sides. Being clean cut meant having no strands touching the ears or collar. The top of their styles is longer to allow for some styling with products that keep things in place. They both have side parts with full heads of thick hair.

In the early 1950's the hairstyles still had influence from the previous decade of the 1940's. This handsome couple shows how men were masculine and women were feminine.

The husband has a strong square jawline and he is smiling with eyes rather than his mouth. His dark hair is slicked back on the sides in a neat manner. The top is longer and brushed back leaving some natural wave to the style. There is a somewhat side part but it is not defined and a few loops of hair are misplaced a bit for a not so perfect look. Most men used hair products or whatever could be found for styling purposes and may have included things such as Vaseline. Back then many folks were poor or at least not well off enough and had to make do with whatever was available. He is wearing a sharp looking dark double breasted suit with a white shirt and tie. It looks as though the fabric has some lighter flecks that resemble pin striping. This man's name was Bob and he was so in love with his wife Faye.
