This is the most charming picture of a young mother holding her baby daughter in the early 1950's.
She has a very classic look for this time period with her short brunette hair, red lipstick, and cat eye glasses. The top middle section of her hair is combed forward and then curled under. It is cut super short and straight across at the forehead. The sides are brushed downward into pin curls at ear level so this style is both straight and curly.
