1940s: Victory Rolls

A popular hairstyle during WWII, Victory Rolls were simple to make for daily wear. Women rolled up the front section of the hair into a high curl and pinned it. Rolls would be small or large, but women enjoyed the height overall.

1960s: The Beehive

A direct descendant of the bouffant, the beehive rose to popularity in the 1960s. This was in direct contrast to the earlier decades of short curled styles. Women grew their hair long and enjoyed pinning all of it high. They would sleep with scarves on and take them off in the morning, cutting their morning routine in half. It was a convenient stylish look enjoyed by women of diverse ethnicities.

1970s: Feathered

Women wore their styles more casually in the 1970s, and that is when the relaxed feathered look was born. Farrah Fawcett is most famous for donning the style. They simply parted the middle, curled back the ends, and brushed the curls loosely, making the “feather.” The style was easily made with fine-textured hair, with or without layers.
