From squiggle brows to vampire facials, beauty trends seem to get wackier by the minute. But as the Golden Globe-winning show The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel illustrates, beauty routines from decades past were equally as outlandish in their own ways. Set in 1958, the show tells the story of a Jewish housewife (played by Rachel Brosnahan) who decides to become a stand-up comedian after her husband leaves her. In each episode, we get an intimate look at what it means to be a woman in the patriarchal culture of the '50s, where her value was determined by her beauty and ability to please a man. The female characters go to great lengths to enhance their looks, and some of the revelations are downright shocking. Ahead, we've rounded up the five craziest beauty trends we spotted on the show and uncovered just how true to history they actually are.
