Great Hair Fridays - September 1941

Well friends, fall has finally arrived. I can't believe September is almost over! This year is just flying by. And now the days are getting shorter and cooler. It's with mixed feelings that I'm starting to pull out my sweaters and wool socks. I love the fall but I'm always sad to see summer end. Ah well....

For today's Great Hair Fridays post, I bring you more from the magazine Modern Beauty Shop. This issue is from September 1941. I absolutely adore the little felt hat on the cover.

This is an interesting take on pin curls - Pin Curls with a Half Twist! I think my hair is too long for this, I have enough trouble with regular pin curls! Someone please give it a try and let me know how it works.

This image I posted awhile back when I first started my Great Hair Fridays series. But it's a great one and so very worth sharing again. I've posted a couple times about victory rolls. (Here and here) and have attempted them with my own hair a few times as well. (see here) Obviously there are more hair styles then just victory rolls for the 1940s, but for anyone wanting to create a classic, and classy, WWII era up-do learning to make victory rolls is a must. :)

Boardwalk Empire - Men's Suits

Ok, so I'm a little behind in watching historical costume flicks. Lately I've been watching Boardwalk Empire. I've seen all of the first season and only have a couple episodes left to watch of season two. This show is awesome! And I can't tell you have nice it is to have a show to watch where the men's clothing is just as good, if not better, then the women's. No lie. The suit in Boardwalk Empire are fantastic. Lots of plaids and stripes in all kinds of colors. The man character, Nucky Thompson played by Steve Buscemi, wears some of the best suits.

I really like Jimmy Darmody's blue suit seen below. It's too bad more guys don't dress like this today.
