’40s hair styles: Get a head start… for the holidays and new year
Choose from these nine new hair arrangements the one that will turn you into the prettiest girl at the holiday parties… and give you a brand new look for 1949!
The future for short hair is a gentle winging away from the face to a fetching back interest. The fashion for long hair lies in the silken-smooth, close-to-the-head arrangements highlighted (and held in place) with veiling, combs, jewels or flowers.
Soft waves begin from a center part, which goes down the back of the head.
Veiling and chignon in 1940s hairstyles
Crisp veiling: Shape 1/3 yard veiling to fit back of head, and attach beribboned bicycle clip. Add own flower.
Evening chignon: 1-1/2 yards of 15″ veiling ties around chignon and ends in a wide bow.
’40s hair for the holidays
Holiday hair-dos take to flowers for evening. Front hair combs into bangs from a side part — the rest of the hair brushes into back curls.
