Essential to re-creating an authentic 1940s look, this resource guide to period styles covers everything from short hairdos popular in the early 1940s to the late 1940s 'cut to fit' look made popular by Christian Dior. Hundreds of vintage illustrations, photographs, and diagrams accompany detailed instructions and techniques for replicating the styles of the decade. Fun facts and trivia related to the hairstyles of the time are included, as is a look at 'War Time' hair and regulations brought about by the government. Comprehensive lists of the beauty tools needed to create these hairdos, where to purchase the various hard-to-find items discussed, and hairstyles based on hair length and type are all included for those interested in revisiting the period beauty of the 1940s.

This book is awesome. It shows detailed instructions on haircuts and styles. Every other book I've found on this topic only shows styles, and not for hairstylists, just for laypersons. I plan to take this in to my next appointment in search of the perfect hairstylist. Read full review
