"r" is for RETRO hair

i have always been so fascinated with fashion and hair through the ages.
the word <<retro>> means of or designating the style of an earlier time.
so today, we are going to take a look at hair styles through the ages.
"r" is for retro

1920's
the twenties have always been my favorite era.
so timeless and classic. 
i love the style of the flapper girls from their pearls, feathers, and fringes 
to their decadent makeup and HAIR (of course!)
in the 20's and 30's pin curls and finger curls were widely used to form the hair.

1930's

1940's
remember the notebook post?
i love this 1940's style from the film. 
spiral curl the bangs
lightly curl under the ends
add a simple cloth hat 
with a killer rose accessory

1950's
the era of the pin up girls
these hairstyles consisted of rolls, poofs, chignons, and lots of volume
love this pin up girl pic.

1960's
the era of twiggy.
big eyes, nude lips, & hair flips.
perfect volume, love the flipped out ends. WOW!
aside from the great hair, don't these ladies have fab sweater patterns!
1970's
big hair, lot's of fluff, and of course. FARRAH!
i love the face framed flip.
i do this a lot after i straighten my hair to add a little flair.
