How to Do Your Hair in a '40s Hairstyle
Unlike food and clothes, which were rationed during the Second World War, women's hairstyles were plentiful during the 1940s. From a simple updo to sultry peekaboo bangs, many of them are still popular today. Although some of the styles look complicated, they can be re-created fairly easily with a little effort and a few basic hair supplies. Think of Rita Hayworth, Bette Davis and modern-day celebrity Dita Von Teese for inspiration.
