With the Wiggle and New Look 1950’s clothes were gaining popularity. Women began altering their views on beauty and accessory aesthetics. Hair and makeup began to match the sexy, flirty shapes of the dresses. Hats of all varieties, shapes, and sizes were wildly popular. Classic pillbox hats, modified cloches, and veiled toppers were prized accessories and came in a range of fashionable colors and material choices. 1950’s makeup is most noted for its bold lines and dramatic colors. Brows were carefully groomed and defined with high arches and eyes were accentuated with black liquid eyeliner. Lips were kept bold and seductively red with an emphasis on perfect cupids bow points.
50’s hairstyles were kept soft and curly. The feminine 50’s styles would pave the way for the bombshell manes of the 60’s. Straight hair was out and short hair was in. Women would often tie their hair back paying careful attention to the lay of the curls and tie in ladylike chiffon scarves to accessorize their styles. Style icons like Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe paved the way for women’s beauty and fashion trends.
