1950s Housewife Hair

This week I tried a short 50s do for the first time and it came out pretty well for the first go.

I still think my hair is a bit short for some of the things I want to do but I can work with it.

Short and curly works though!

I liked how the back came out all curly.

Once I get this style nailed down, there will be a tutorial. Until then, wish me happy experimenting!


  1. It looked so cute! It really finished the outfit.

  2. Oh, you are so adorable! Love the color combo!! I can't wait till I get mine chopped off in a week!!!!!! I want to play around with it and maybe try a Betty Boop look.

  4. You look so marvelous! Short hair is absolutely gorgeous on you (it really drives home a point I've been thinking about a lot lately, and that is, I wonder how many amongst us would look really good - perhaps even better - if our tresses were considerably shorter?), and I completely adore that stunning floral print skirt.

  5. You look like quite the "sweater girl" Just lovely! The pearls and red lips are just the right touch! Your hair looks so fresh and pretty. I keep thinking of June Lockhart or somebody, anyway somebody who is a housewife in an old '50's television show.

  6. Can you post the picture you were working off of?

    1. I didn't really have a specific picture I was looking at but it ended up kind of looking like the second to last photo in this post: I just curled all of my hair down and went with how it wanted to curl.
