Second Trimester: Hairstyles for Victory

Sunday, March 7, 1943

So decreed the stylists at the annual Midwest Beauty Trade Show in Chicago. The ideal length would be 4-7 inches, slightly longer in the front than in the back. Last year’s feather edge or “baby haircut” would no longer be practical. Waves, not curls, will be the look of the moment.
