Welcome to the first post in the Vintage Makeup for Darker Skin Tones series! Please read my disclaimer here to learn more about where this all came from and what this is all about.

Vintage Uniforms for the 1920s and 1930s Hairstylist

Vintage Uniforms for the 1920s and 1930s Hairstylist This Rosalia Beauty Uniforms advertisement shows such stunning examples of vintage uniform fashions for a hairstylist in the 1920s, but not so much the 1930s. The advertisement came from the 1931 American Hairdresser Magazine that I picked up at the Vintage Fashion Expo in Santa Monica back in May. I ...

American Hairdresser Magazine May 1931

1930s bob hairstyles and vintage waves As promised, I am posting some pages from my 1931 American Hairdresser Magazine that I picked up at the Vintage Fashion Expo in Santa Monica back in May.

Feel like you are applying Vintage Mascara without the Vintage Germs

Every once and a while I come across makeup in an antique store. And sometimes the container still has the makeup in it. For those of you who might be tempted to goof off and actually apply this makeup to yourself for fun... please don't. Imagine how much bacteria and gunk can grow on something ...

Pastel Hair Color: Play for a night, then wash it right out.

Lavender, pale pink, and blue vintage pastel hair color, but just for 1 night! Love the idea of vintage pastel hair, but don't want to make such a commitment? We know that "party" colors, bright/unnatural hair colors, fade with time, but they also stain hair. Some stain more than others, but they don't always wash completely out after ...
