The Front

Thus far::

  1. We've done the cutBasically, there's only one haircut back then, but there are many different variations.

  2. We've decided on part - section the hair from the crown to just in front of the ears.  You can see from the pictures belowthe different parts (and if they are parted, they all start from the crown and go back to just in front of the ears).

  3. We've done the curling up all hair into rolls from sides, front, and back, pin up.  It's possible you may want to use pincurls in the back instead of rolls.

    • Note:  If making a big roll in front (like in the picture on the logo above left) the front roll should be left open in a roll, then sprayed.  Rat inside the roll to keep it full, or use a hair rat (cigar-shaped).  Rats should be your hair color, and cut to fit.  

  4. Now we'll style the front.

There are tons of variations on this main theme.  The rules seem pretty rigid, and they are (they all have the same basic haircut, if the hair is parted it's always from the crown to just in back of the ears), and then the hair is curled, either with rolls or pincurls.  There are dozens of variations on this theme, though, and many of them are shown on this page.  You can find other variations on the web, too, but they'll all follow these rules and be created this way.

All the pictures here are of Ingrid Bergman, doing all sorts of the different styles of the period.  Note that they all have the same basic haircut and curls, just with variations of longer, shorter, up, down, parted, not parted, small curls, or big curls.  

Check out all these variations!
