Helen Hamblin~high school ca.1939
Senior picture 1940.
Mom & my dad, George Ellsworth newly engaged. 1942.
This style was more "up" and tightly rolled.
This one is wavy from pin curls.
Wedding day, June 5, 1942, Mesa, AZ.
Wavy up front, pulled back on the sides.
I was thrilled to see this one! The "do" from the top.
I imagine those hair pins had to be adjusted several times a day!
Mom is relaxing on a quilt with baby Sharon in her mother's front yard on East 2nd St.
I love this one! All pulled up and piled in front.
It reminds me of the way the Andrews Sisters wore their hair...you know,
"Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" and all that!
I am in trouble for this one, I am sure!
But really, hair took so much time and work to get just right back then! After washing it you had to curl it, in this case with pins curls. Then it had to dry. It was not proper to be seen in public with curlers in your hair and wearing the scarf was one way of hiding them and keeping them in place as well!
Seriously...isn't my Mom an adorable girl?!
