If you had to pick your top three decades for makeup, fashion, and hair what would they be?

My top three are the roaring 1920s, the glamorous and elegant 1950s and the women's wartime fashion of the 1940s.

Re: If you had to pick your top three decades for makeup, fashion, and hair what would they be?

Mine would have to be the 60's for the hair, 70's for it's cool fashion, and 50's because everyone was always made up.

Re: If you had to pick your top three decades for makeup, fashion, and hair what would they be?

I would go for the 1700's, 1950's and 1940's I love corsets and lace.

@mintshake - I'll agree with you on women's dresses in the 1700's - those were beautiful!  I hope you weren't talking makeup and hair though!  Their white powder was finely flaked lead - which they rarely washed off and just continued to pile on day after day!

 

I would have to say 1800's Southern Belle (a la Scarlet O'Hara) and then the 40's and 50's.  I'd love to wear heels and pearls everyday!

@kalex- Scarlet O' Hara definitely worked a corset unlike anyone else. If you want to be someone during that time she  should be at the top of the list!

One thing: Most women of that time never wore those elegant ballgown dresses.  A lot of them are high collared and plainly colored.  It is one of the misconceptions of that time period.

 

 

Like this. >> And yes, that is me dressed in period clothing.  Wetplates are amazing!

Re: If you had to pick your top three decades for makeup, fashion, and hair what would they be?

I would have to agree with you @ashhay! Those were also my top three. I love the pin-up girls! It is so powerful to see how curvy women were back then & how it was preferred and now it seems the media is pushing anorexia on women. It is sad! I still prefer pin-ups. I absolutely love their hair and makeup as well as fashion of that time. The twenties were so classy! People would not leave the house without being presentable and nicely dressed, something that did not prevail today haha

1870's love the dresses

1950's Pinup ^_^

1990's Baggy pants, crop tops and boots (for girls ^_^....think Aaliyah 

Re: If you had to pick your top three decades for makeup, fashion, and hair what would they be?

I think the 1990s was a combo of heavy makeup from the 1980s ( minus the wild tacky colors / more earth tones) and the natural look of the late 60s/early 70s. I tried to get my hair like Aaliyah's but I think the hairstyle is suited for thinner faces.

Re: If you had to pick your top three decades for makeup, fashion, and hair what would they be?

Think the 1990s depended on what kind of style you liked in the first place but I mainly liked it because in school it was ok to not be a girly girl and still be kind of fashionable.
