1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 3 Dec 2012
By Andrea
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very disappointing book. I sent the first copy back because I thought it hadn't printed properly but realised it was meant to have lots of blank pages after receiving the replacemnt book.
Never had a book with so little inside!

5.0 out of 5 stars 1940's hairdo's 8 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very clear and concise instructions on how to do a variety of hair styles from the poodle to victory rolls and page boys. I also enjoyed reading about the history of how this book cam about. I also enjoyed the fact it is a direct facsimile of the original book from the Hollywood hairdresser who compiled it.

3.0 out of 5 stars An important piece of history with good info, scan/ print quality a little less than archival 26 Aug 2013
By Mary Dare - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I appreciate the compiler's efforts in making a reprint of this rare material available, since it's near impossible to find original 1940s guides. That said, the quality of the original scan or the printing leaves a little to be desired. The halftone dots are visible to varying degrees on every page taken from the original, even in the background (which is optimally supposed to be white), and this makes the text a little fuzzy and hard to read and the pictures a bit dark. This is also a touch expensive for the length, which is the stated 40 pages only if you include blanks, one-sided pages and full-page section markers. I counted 21 pages of actual content (including the copy of the original cover). Otherwise it's beautifully illustrated, offers clear pincurl set instructions for 12 iconic 40s styles, and starts off with a brief but helpful illustrated intro to techniques.

The book is easy to follow with good pictures for guidance in replicating several iconic hair styles from the 1940's. I found the book very helpful.
2.0 out of 5 stars Hard to understand... 8 Jan 2014
By katiemmoon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not really a substantial "how-to" guide. It's copied from another book and compiled into 8-10 styles. Maybe my hair stylist will understand it? I need a translater.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great information on 1940's hairstyles 5 Jan 2014
By Tana Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great diagrams with detailed discriptions on how to achieve the glamorous 1940's looks that you can do yourself, without a costly salon price.
