Bella Book: Vintage Hairstyling
Bella Book: Vintage Hairstyling

It's no secret that Mad Men has popularized retro fashion — and if you're looking for some tips on Joan and Peggy's makeup, these straight-from-the-set secrets will help you achieve their looks. Hair, on the other hand, is a little more involved. That's where Vintage Hairstyling ($29.95) comes in. Hair and makeup artist Lauren Rennells has created a full-color guide to recreating classic styles from the '40s through early '60s. Whether you're looking for pin curls, victory rolls, finger waves, or pompadours, you'll find easy step-by-step instructions. While some of the looks are too stiff for me personally, others are delightful if you're trying to work a softer retro vibe. And though it should go without saying, this would be a fantastic gift for the Dita Von Teese wannabe in your life.

Oh, I am off to buy this one! I have always loved the hairstyles from the 1940's. Rita Hayworth, Veronica Lake. I really need to stop buying so many style books. I'm an addict! LOL!

I can't get enough information about Mad Men inspired beauty. I love that show - I love each hairstyle, make-up application, clothes jewelry etc... the plots, acting, lighting, directing and writing are all of the highest quality - but the LOOK of the show is amazing. Joan's hair must have been taken right from this book.

Oooo...I like this! Pity I just got my hair butchered (ask for shoulder length, get chin length, pardon?), so I can't do much with it!

I LOVE this book! I've had it for a while now, and have learned so much about styling my hair and having the proper tools to get the looks I am after. I've gone from total novice to just about (soon!!) mastering victory rolls. Seriously, if you are in the least bit interested in Vintage hair-do's and learning about curlers, pin curls, setting lotions, and the important comb out, this book is a great investment.
