dressing alike hair styles old historic photo

Found at an estate sale.

We have been having a little discussion about how we all try to dress alike, which dictates style, I guess. So at a recent estate sale I bought a box full of old photos that some family had left behind.  I still can't understand how families don't treasure these old gems but it is definitely a changing world.  What oldies treasured....the young people throw away.

Anyway, I wonder how they got those hairstyles to work and stay up like we see here.  Remember when teased hair came around and the hairstyles were so cherished when hair was piled a mile high and flipped on the bottoms?  So how did these ladies get this hair to stay up.  Also notice that the dresses are SO similar!

On the back of this post card it says Grannie Reeves (last one on right).  Grannie, you are lovely and this blog brings you back to life!

I think in those days spening time getting dressed and groomed for a woman looks like it would take half the day. I prefer modern times.

Those hairstyles are quite amazing, Barbara.  And, you're right about the dresses.  They are all the same color, and there's only a couple different styles.

Susie, thanks for commenting.

Joe, it does look that way.  Plus they may have had a maid to help dress them!

Myrl, we still wonder, don't we, about who starts the trend!

Don, who puts starch in their hair??????

I knew that without Googling it.

Remember flour was used in wigs in the 1700's.

Barbara I've got some photos kind of like this of my grandparents.  I have no idea of how they did their hair back then but I see others do.

Don, you DO know a little bit about everything!  I never heard of hair starch.  I'm gonna google it.

Anna, let's see some of your pictures.
