Published in 1943, Fashion Do’s and Don’ts Hats, Hair-Do’s and Makeup was written by a stylist as part of a series of booklets with fashion tips and directions for the most flattering looks. The 50-page 6x9 inch paperback book details how a woman of the early 1940s should wear her hats, accessories, hair, and makeup based on her face shape, coloring, age, and facial features.
The booklet provides detailed ideas and images to illustrate its advice. The first half of the vintage booklet lays out helpful hints on how to wear your hair and hats for the oval, long, round, square, heart, diamond, and triangle face shape. The second half of the book details hair and makeup advice for facial features like a long nose or small eyes or if you wear glasses.
Hats, Hair-Do’s and Makeup is an invaluable resource with adorable illustrations for anyone looking for advice for their retro hair and makeup design or vintage fashion help.
