Hats were also fashionable accessory for women in the 1950’s, for the reason that they were believed to add a final touch of glamour to any woman’s outfit. The pillbox hat, first introduced by Balenciaga and later modeled by Jackie Kennedy, became one of the trendiest accessories of the decade.

1950s FASHION EVENING WEAR.

Not all women could afford to wear couture designer clothes in the fifties and the majority of women wore mass produced goods. Yet fresh ideas and fashion concepts trickled down from the French salons to Madame dress shops and department stores throughout the world.

Clothes worn in the day were very feminine and designed to remind women they were women. Women also still craved luxury in dress after years of deprivation during the Utility period. Evening wear produced in the 50s even for the masses was often ultra glamorous. Aspects of 50’s vintage clothing to collect are clothes with tiny waists, shown often as glamorous, feminine, luxurious, low necked evening dresses or boned strapless dresses in taffetas, tulle, lace, nets, chiffon and satin or even nylon.

Celebrities spotted with glamorous retro hairstyles

Believe it or not, even the 80’s are having some influence on today’s retro hairstyles. Fashion icon Kate Moss was photographed at the red carpet premiere of her perfume line with big, stiff hair. Maybe there is no such thing as a “new” hairstyle, but it’s a fitting tribute to the women of earlier decades to bring back a retro look and remind everyone what old school glamour really is.

Retro hairstyles are hot right now, These looks are pure glamour, and they are fun choices for everyday glamour, special occasions, weddings, and proms. You could even work a more extreme retro hairstyle, like Swiss Miss braids into a party costume.

No discussion of 1940’s hairstyles would be complete without the Victory Rolls hairstyle:

Step One

Decide which style of victory roll you want to do - both suit all face shapes and can really transform a look! Once you have decided on the position of your rolls, part your hair … central is usually best for top reverse rolls and to the side is best for side reverse rolls!

Step Two

Section your hair and tie back all of your hair that you will not be rolling. Remember that the length of your hair can change the size of the roll so bear this in mind when you section it.

Step Three – Side Roll

Hold the hair at full length away from the head. Start rolling the hair around 2 fingers towards the back of your head.

Step Three – Top Roll

Hold the hair at full length away from the head. Start rolling the hair around 2 fingers towards the ceiling.

Step Four

Once you have completely rolled the hair, pin in place and gently remove your fingers. Be sure not to pull the hair from the centre of the roll.

Step Five

Complete all the above actions for the other side if you wish. Style your hair to match the era with large rollers or tongs or go for a large bun or high pony tail.
