Two summer hairstyles of 1940 as designed by Joan Clair of Clairol Inc

Here we have two summer hairstyles from Clairol Inc.

The formal coiffure on the left is clean, and away from the temples line. A pompadour and criss-crossing of the hair on top and back. The hairstyle on the right also emphasizes the pompadour, but much of its charm lies in the fact that it is short and cooling. Hair is set in deep hair waves and swept to the side, where it ends in a swirl of flat ringlets.
