Are 1940’s hairstyles making a come-back? Does history really repeat itself? Yes it does! Read on to know how.
For those who have been keeping a keen eye out for the latest trends and current fashions, you might have noticed that most of the new hairstyles are influenced by famous actors, singers and other big celebrities. And this isn’t entirely a new phenomenon, because things were no different even back in the 1940s.
In fact, during World War II when it was considered fashionable to be feminine, women used to copy the then popular Hollywood hairstyles. Actresses such as Rita Hayworth immortalized the hairstyle fashion of side parted finger waves. This along with Veronica Lake’s cascading blonde hair was considered among the sexiest styles of the time.
This is why it isn’t surprising to see style icons such as Gwen Stefani and Christina Aguilera bringing back 1940s hairstyles. Stefani’s platinum locks are reminiscent of some of the classic hairstyles that Hollywood’s leading ladies used to wear back in the 40s. And it is this look that stylists across the country are trying to recreate for so many girls who visit their salons. Similarly, most girls would give their right arm to get the 40’s hairstyle worn by Christina Aguilera.
The use of hair accessories and wavy hair ruled the hairstyles of the 1940s. Whether short or long, the typical 1940s women’s hair had always had feminine waves while the front and sides were pinned back with a rolled effect. And if you are a girl who prefers vintage hairstyles, you too can get your own 1940’s hairstyle at your nearest salon. And it doesn’t matter whether you have short, medium or long hair, so go ahead and get glamorous!
