It's no secret that I really love the fashions of old Hollywood. Vintage= win, in my eyes. I very lightly touched on this subject before, with a post on Ms. Bette Davis' beautiful costume from the film Jezebel... I also absolutely adore some of the hairstyles from this period too. I particularly love 1940s hair styles, but I have a fondness for a few others too.
I didn't include every hair trend I liked, because if I did, this post would be never ending, but I thought that I would show a few of my faves. You will notice that I adore curls, particularly. They are a major, major, win in my books. Every chance I get, I attempt to curl my hair in a manner that is vintage...
And no one rocked the curls better then;
There have been rumours that her famous curls were in actual fact a wig... I don't care either way. They're absolutely beautiful!!! My absolute favorite of all hairstyles. :)
Here are some other hairstyles that I often glance enviously at and wish that somehow my hair would be obliging enough to let me make it at least half as pretty as some of these ladies. But alas, not all our wishes come true, do they? Ah well.
Veronica Lake. (Kind of an obvious one, nearly everyone loves her hair).

It's interesting also to note that even after all these years, that vintage glamor, in particular it's hair trends are even more popular then ever...
