1930’s Hairstyles – Vintage Hair Salon 1934

1930’s Women’s Hairstyles in the early part of the decade were all about waves !
The scary perming machines though were all the rage,
and no self respecting beauty salon could be seen without one.
Here in this charming vintage hair salon film, you see a good example of a side parting wave,
with hair pulled back in to curls and secured firmly with bobby pins.
To compliment these styles, hats had to be worn to the side slightly.
In fact, whatever the hairstyle, it had to compliment the latest hat fashion !
In early 1930’s Fashion, the hairstyle icons would have generally all been Hollywood stars, such
as Bette Davis, Jean Harlow, Merle Oberon etc.
I like the added feature of receiving a manicure, while sitting beneath the dryer.

  1. Does anyone know where I can purchase a vintage machine like that? I own a cosmetology school and am trying to get the students interested in the history of their profession.
