Celebs going retro
Most new hairstyles today are influenced by celebrities, although things were no different even back in the 1940s when women used to copy the popular Hollywood hairstyles worn by actresses such as Rita Hayworth.
Many celebrities choose the 1940s retro look for special events such as Jessica Alba’s recent show stopping hairstyle at the Met Ball. However, this look is becoming increasingly more popular as an everyday hairstyle.
Dita Von Teese is known for her fascination with the 1940s classic retro style and now style icons such as Gwen Stefani and Christina Aguilera are joining the ranks to bring back classic 1940s hairstyles.
