Beauty Flashback: 1950’s Hair

There’s no denying it. The 50’s were fabulous.

Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor; these are the women that defined glamour and femininity in one of Hollywood’s most enchanting eras.

Last week you saw the hilarious beauty fads from the 50s (check it out here), and this week it’s all about the hair. Take your hair-spiration from these charming beauties, as so many of today’s Hollywood stars have done.

 “The Audrey” i.e. The Pixie Cut

“The Grace” i.e. The Long Bob

 “The Marilyn” i.e. Glamour Curls
