I think you may have to talk to the "Whistle Bait"(wahines) over at world wide retro.

Laney had found the best book on 40s hair... try this source as Amazon.com no longer has it, but this shop in the UK might. 1940s Hairstyles by Daniela Turudich

Or check on ebay, 1940s Hairstyles on Ebay

So what I'm aiming to achieve right now is very structured 40sish Andrews Sisters-type curves, like the blond chick from the infamous Mondo bikini contest. I set my hair in hot rollers pretty regularly, but I do it to get a softer look. I haven't played with bobby pins to anchor the curls... is that all it would take to achieve this sort of look?



I think the Mondo Tiki girl probably used steam rollers. The steam would be more effective and fast-working than just regular hot rollers. (I've tried the regular ones and it didn't do squat. Plus straight hair can be more difficult to roll when dry.)

Also, if you're looking for something more 40's, you could really curl up the ends, then sweep the sides up into a Betty Grable and secure with lots of bobby pins. Or if you don't have bangs, how about a seductive peek-a-boo style a la Veronica Lake. Combine that with a grass skirt and you've really got something!

Hey guys, I didn't "do" that last post...Vintagegirl wrote it before I had a chance to sign out. But I think she really did it to embarrass me.

For the record I have never tried the "regular ones" and I have naturally curly hair!

I'm unsure of many TC-ers gender. Sometimes I find out someone I thought was a lady is really a fella and the other way around. Unfortunately that usually happens at the end of the date. Anyway, I was pretty sure Atomic Cocktail was a boy, then I read about the steam rollers followed by the supposed explanation...This scene has just gone too weird and I'm not dating any of you anymore.

This web site has it as well as the Vintage Face and Vintage Wedding books. I ordered it as a gift from these folks.:

I bought a ton of 1940s and 1950s hair stylist magazines a few years ago as I've always been interested in these styles and how-to recreate them. Curl patterns were quite an art back then - very complex. Unfortuntely I have spring-hair (very curly/wirey and the curls don't "relax" right. I think the only kind of style I might be able to pull off with hair like this is a long-hair style like Rita Hayworth or something. I just don't know so I I'd given up on the vintage look. I do like the idea of some of you "pros" out there like Vintage Girl, Laney, etc giving us a hand maybe at the next Oasis? Or maybe we can have a tiki central girls salon party. In the meantime, keep experimenting with the steam rollers.

The tiki girl's night party sounds like a great idea! I just bought the 1940s Hairstyles book, it should be here in a few days. (Thanks, jab!) Let's do it at the next Oasis, or maybe once I've moved down to LA.

Those of you who've had trouble with rollers -- have you tried using a really good styling gel? When I first started using rollers, my hairstylist told me to use gel in my hair, and it was a disaster for me -- my hair takes curl very easily, and the gel made it look ridiculous! However, for someone who's hair doesn't hold curl well, it might do the trick, unless it would weigh it down too much.

Atomic -- I have the most darling barrette that will look fabulous in your hair!

wigs, baby, wigs!

Of course you could go my route and use up a couple of cans Aquanet after an hour or 2 of teasing. It's murder when you wash it out, so if you do do a retro do - invest in a good hair kerchief and satin pillowslip so it can last more than one night

So, after having long hair for over 10 years (I'm talking 3/4 the way down my back) I may have to cut it in order to get a job. Well I've always been faced with that everytime I have to look for a new job. Yeah even an artist has to conform inorder to survive. But anyways I was looking for any websites you guys and gals may know of that have really good pictures of vintage style hair for men. I don't really want a crew cut or a flat top, (but thouse would manage better) I was thinking of a pompadore or something that fits "me". I'm looking on the rockabilly barbers site and I like what I see, but what I see isn't very detailed. Any suggestions?

I know that feeling, you need to cut your hair to get a "proper job", I alway think that your talents should count more than your haircut BUT when i had waist long white-boy-dreddlocks most employers took one look at my hair and i never got a chance to show my talents.

IF you have to cut your hair then I recommend the pompadour, you get to use hair grease and carry a flick-comb. The only downside is finding a good barber it took me two years to find mine.
