Default Hairstyles and clothing from days gone by....

Thought I would share a couple of sites I came across recently that I have really enjoyed browsing through. I was originally looking at updos from the past, but these sites also have a lot of interesting info about and pictures of clothing styles from the past.

This one is interesting, too:

Thanks for posting this.

Im always so interested in past fashions and hair and just what it was like to be alive back then.

I was totally obsessed with Laura Ingalls Wilder from the books when I was young too.

In one of the Little House books--either Prairie or Big Woods--Laura describes how Ma and a couple of other ladies wore their hair to a barn dance. I'm not quite remembering it all, but it consisted of parting the hair from ear to ear, putting the back section of it into a bun, then parting the front section down the middle and pinning each half under the bun. Does anyone else remember? (studying the pretty vintage photos....)

Thanks for those links. I especially like the first one (and the link at the bottom of the first one, too!)

I remember! I remember!

Do you also remember how later in that series when the fringe became stylish and they would heat the tongs and curl them? I guess thats been popular for a long time.

I'm glad you all enjoyed those sites!

I actually managed to do a style with the front poofed up (I think they may have called that a quiff (?)) I liked the look, but felt like it looked kind of out of place with modern day clothes. The dresses from those old days are so gorgeous - I wish they were in style today! Although, I'm sure they were not comfortable - especially the corsets! Oh well!
