In the '40s women were encouraged to use their hair to 'fix' any flaws in their face. If she had perfect, shiny hair with a good color, she should use it to frame her face. If she had a full face, she should use a 1940s hairstyle that piled hair on top of her head to distract from it. If a thin face was her problem, her hairstyle should be down and over her ears to make it look wider. All of these suggestions contributed to a variety to hairstyles in 1940s. Hairdos were never, ever straight and sleek. Curls and volume were in style especially above the forehead and on the ends (rolled under.) Hairdos almost always started with wet setting pin-curls at night and were styled from there the next morning. Mature women's hairstyles favored long hair (a tradition since their childhood) that was gathered in the back in a low bun. The rest of the hair was waved or curled on top the head. The hairstyle looked short since all hair was gathered up away from the face. It was through that this style kept attention on her face and not on her silver hair. Many Pachucas, female Zoot Suiters, adopted a bouffant style, hair gathered on top. Voluminous hair on top was at its peak in 1944. Rita Hayworth in Covergirl, sported this new style with her curly hair creating natural height. The style was also called a pompadour hairstyle especially when hair lacked natural curl and volume was created by making big rolls instead. Approx. 12x16 inches, and in excellent condition
