Atomic Era Hairdos

Postby Matt Deckard » Mon Apr 04, 2005 1:42 pm

So do any of you ladies out their sport the hairdos of the jet set era?

I was at the club au-go-go dance Saturday and saw plenty of groovy chicks in their gitchy threads and 60's hairdos. As a guy a put in some mineral oil and comb it back then put on my hat, though as girls I suppose you have a lot more work at hand.

Emma Peel flip huh... you have to show a pic if you have one.

To bad about the hair stylist. I guess when a woman finds the right one it is like finding gold. I used to think men's barbers were all the same when I went to get my hair cut, then I decided to change my look to that Jeff Bridges/Preston Tucker style that was big through the 30's to the 50's. Long on top and short on the sides. No barber was ever able to get it right until I found an old Marine in Monrovia who knew exactly what I was talking about. now I can't go to another barber

My hair is a bit too long now, I'm do for a trim.

I don't envy the work they have to go through to keep the hairdos together, though It does look rad

Well now how could I resist this thread?

I typically wear my hair in a 1960s style flip. It takes about a half a can of Aquanet each time I get it done.
Image

I was so excited to be hostessing the latest Shag reception in Palm Springs that I went a little overboard with the teasing comb here:
Image

Here it is not so teased with a looser curl for a casual hang with friend Charles Phoenix
Image

I had a special "wiglet" with extra curls made to match my natural flaming red locks. I bobby pin it to my own hair on top of my head.
I save the wiglet for extra special occasions.... Like helping the Millionaire (of Combustible Edison fame) listen to some tunes on the headphones - yah that's all we're doing... oh those darn paparazzi...
Image

Or like having cocktails with artist Mark Ryden and his artist wife Marion Peck. (Apparently the girl behind us was not impressed with the wiglet)
Image

Of course, after I've been partying with our own Nathan in Las Vegas, it tends to get a bit messy...

Cherry looks merry in hair she can carry.

Good shots! That hair spray must get awfully expensive.

I like seeing someone sportin' the high hair.

Dorris used to do it, though she doesn't seem to have your panache.

NOBODY has Cherry's panache. . .or, if they do, they should give it back, IMMEDIATELY!

All the wigs and extensions from Martha Mitchell wife of Nixon era Attorney General. We used to have a campus proctor in high school who did her hair in that style. I'm sure someone on here can google up some images.

Postby Midlife Modern » Tue Dec 06, 2005 10:07 am

I love your book tiki! I am experiencing a weird form of nostalgia from seeing those pics.

They bring back the smell of the copius amounts of hairspray needed to keep these architectural miracles from collapsing.

As an aspiring teenage at the age of 10 & I had first hand experience in sleeping on those rollers too. Yuck!

This is my stylin' 'do. Admittedly, not as fabulous as Miss Cherry Capri (then again, who is?), but it's a start!
