I bought a copy of this book a while a go and it's been both interesting and useful. However I took it to an event along with some other books and thought I'd lost it there. Annoying to say the least, but because it had been a good resource I decided to buy a replacement copy. Then last week in the middle of quite a long and taxing day, I decided to take a break from the computer and found myself pondering the bookshelves.
What started off as a ten minute reading break, turned into a little bit of shelf rearrangement. I moved some cameras from the top of the piano and arranged them on a shelf, you know how it goes, you have these little move arounds and think it won't take long....
Well it did take much longer than planned, but that's mainly because the books I'd moved to another shelf to make way for my beloved vintage cameras took on a life of their own and within minutes were flying off the shelf, taking the fairy lights with them, which in turn snaked around more books and took those down too! Fear not the cameras were fine, but my lounge was a mess!
During operation 'I wish I'd never touched those books' I found what was my lost copy of 1940s hairstyles. So I now have a spare copy, which I thought would be of more use to you vintage lovers.
It's a great little book, and it is little, I was expecting something more substantial in size when I first bought it, but whilst it may be petite, it is FULL of details and facts, from hair cuts of the decade, to styles and setting patterns. It's full of amazing photographs and illustrations. It's a great look at the history of hair with step by steps to help you get your own forties inspired looks.
