vintage hairstyles

Many pictures from the 1940s 1950s 1960s 1970s to help with your search for vintage hairstyles and other helpful information from that time period.

One important little detail for a vintage wedding photo is to pay attention to the pose and these two show us how.

The bride sits in a chair with her gown draped out like a hoop skirt. Her dress is strapless which is not exactly true vintage but the appliqued lace is. She has elbow length long gloves with the fingers cut out. Her updo bun hairstyle is classic with a tiara and veil attached to the back. She has side swept bangs and her style is straight is smooth.

This seven year old grade school girl from the 1950's has a charming pixie cut with Bettie Page bangs.

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.

It's so fun to look at these old photographs. It looks like a brother and sister are standing outside in front of a forest posing for this shot.

1940's Kids

The girl is wearing tattered clothes. These are probably considered play clothes. Her jeans have holes at the knees. She has a simple ponytail to make playing easier and her bangs are chopped straight across and no doubt her mom cut her hair. The sides of her locks are sticking straight out which matches her messy look. Her coat is buttoned with the buttons going into the wrong holes. Did you ever do that as a kid?

They are cut short. She is wearing a bonnet. The littlest girl is wearing a fashion hat. She has a cute coat that has pleats and fabric covered buttons.
