Throwback Thursday – The Vintage Hairdo Indicator

hair do love life
In 1944, this little lifestyle snippit was featured in LIFE Magazine. It is charming and delusional in all the ways that the Forties possibly could be – this was LIFE, after all.

Obviously, a bow on the top of her head means that Ann Mitchell is out to get herself a man (what does that say about Lady Gaga?). A bow worn in back means that Betty Dupree is not interested in men (women, perhaps?). Bow worn on the right side indicated that Becky Brown is deeply in love. Lastly, a bow worn at left is an apparent signal and challenge. It means Betty Chaney is going steady. Vintage jelly bracelets, if you will.
