(That's right: the 50s weren't all June-Cleaver-pearls.) What does this mean for you? It means amazing vintage, pin-up style hair trends that you can make your own.

We have to say that this is we love about beauty and fashion and this whole industry. Fantastic trends come back into fashion, evolve with modern twists, and instead of forgetting all about our past, we build it on to develop future creativity.
