Coordinated 1950s hair accessories completed an outfit. No retro-loving rockabilly gal would go without them today, either. A 50s hair flower clip, pinned to one side, was a pretty alternative to wearing a fascinator hat. 50s headbands, bandannas and hair scarves were popular with teenagers, tied around a ponytail or as a neck scarf. Teens and women also liked rolled hair scarves or wide headbands tucked behind the ears in the late 50s. The pin up hair bandana, turban, and snood from the 1940s were still worn by many women well into the 1950s.
If you don’t have the perfect hairstyle, consider a 1950s wig in the long flip, pageboy, Italian, poodle, curly bob (Marilyn Monroe style) or bouffant. Shop 1950s wigs and hair accessories from these online stores:
