How to Create a 1950s Look
This is an article I wrote some while ago to help promote an event in the area, but which in the end was never used. Although I suspect a significant portion of my readers are already knowledgeable about how to dress in a 1950s style, I hope it might be useful to anyone who is new to vintage dressing or who may wish to put together a fancy dress costume, for example. If you have any questions, comments, corrections or suggestions then feel free to leave a comment!
Women’s hair in the 1950s was commonly softly curled or waved using rollers or pin curls. Perms were used to help women with straight hair achieve these styles. There are many guides and tutorials available on the internet for learning how to create 1950s hairstyles, however vintage hairstyling techniques can be difficult if you’ve never tried before. For the best results, I’d recommend having a practice before going to an event.
