Jean Baudrillard used to say “What goes out of fashion enters the costume. What disappears in the costume revives in fashion”. And here we see the 50s hair accessories return. Headbands, scarves and headbands to give a vintage and sophisticated touch to our hairstyle.
Fashion is beautiful because nothing disappears, it’s a bit like loves, walks around and then returns with strength, originality and vigour and every time it amazes and fascinates us. Today I would like to see with you some hair accessories inspired by the 1950s that could be interesting to enrich and embellish our hairstyles. If you are curious to discover the new accessory trends, keep reading the post!
1. BANDS AND POIS: FROM THE PIN-UP TO OUR DAYS
THEY WERE DID THEY HAVE KEPT THEIR HUMANITY
In the late 40s and early 50s, the fame of pin-up models reached their peak. Often they were represented, as well as with corsets and skimpy dresses, with bands of polka dots in bright colours. The hair, gathered in a neat chignon, was then surrounded and pampered by the band, which added a touch of colour and energy to the look.
And here we see these accessories returning to full-on the hair trend. Red or pink bands, with white or coloured polka dots. The ways to wear them are different, with a bow for a more casual look or without for a more sophisticated look. Combined with a black eye-liner and a red lipstick they will take us back to the heart of the 50s!
2. SOFT AND COLORED FOULARDS
At the neck or on the head, scarves are now a real trend! It is true that we must understand how to wear and tie them.
For the most skilled, ready to try their hand at creating unique and original hairstyles, here are coloured scarves with different patterns and colours.
Then we have some soft bands, with the elastic on the back, for those that are a bit like us or that simply want to enrich their look with ease and immediacy. With bright colours and special patterns, they give a touch of vitality without making us go too crazy in front of the mirror!
