Remember yesterday when I told you that, officially, hats are my new headbands? It’s true. I was wearing a lot of hair bows, bow ties and any kind of bow that could be pinned in my hair. A lot of hairbands. Now I only wear a scarf in my hair every now and then, tied in a bow, or a bow at the back, hiding my high bun bobby pins.
Today I found the most precious piece of vintage fashion & beauty dealing with the hair bows and their signification! It’s from an old issue of Life magazine (March 1944) and it was part of a larger story called “High School Fads”. I guess it’s a Back to School day today, huh?
