Trend Alert: The Veronica Lake Combo

Ever since Veronica Lake made sexy, come-hither waves popular back in the 1940s, celebrities everywhere have been emulating her style. But in the past few weeks alone, it appears everything old is new again, as we've seen a resurgence of the sexy look with stars like Kate Hudson, Selita Ebanks, and Mena Suvari wearing their own interpretations of the classic combination. To get the style yourself, be sure to check out my tips on how to wear a crimson lip and how to get retro waves. Will you wear this always-in-style trend, or is it too old-school for your liking?

Other actresses of the time didn't wear their hair as long as she did, with flowing waves and a lot of volume. So she did have the style of her own, and her eye wasn't always covered by her hair in the "Peek a boo" style. I think it just fell that way sometimes. I'm a fan of old movies, and I haven't seen any other actress at the time wear her hair like that. They all kept it above the shoulders and pulled back so you could see their faces. Since their face was the money maker in old Hollywood.

love this look, although Veronica Lake did not invent this look - her signature was the hair over one eye. plenty of women, actresses and numerous other professions, wore this hairstyle before she did...
