    Hi guys and girls.

    I was doing a little research on hairstyles, when I stumbled upon a homepage with hairstyles - male and female - of the last decades, and I figured: Hey, I'll check out the men's hairstyles from WW2! :D
    I made a small collection of the pics I found online, and here's the pics that i found so far.
    I've only found some german men's hairstyles, I'll see if I can find some do's from other countries involved in WW2 one way or the other.
    If you've got some good pics of men's hairstyles in the late 1930's to mid-1940's, please feel free to post in this thread. ;)

    Cheers,

    Maria.

    The guy in the wedding photo needs a slap for even considering that hairstyle. The world's first laminar-flow wig

    lol I guess the poor guy just had a lot of unmanageable hair.

    :thumbleft:

    I'll see if I can find some photos that I remember seeing, from a danish book about the Occupation years here in Denmark; there's a particularly long-haired danish guy, a so-called "swingpjatte" (Directly translated: "Swing-silly"), as the youthful swing-music enthusiasts were called here - I guess it's a danish, more "tame" equivalent to the hip zoot suit cats in the US. :D
    HE's long-haired, I promise you! :lol:

    Anyway, I don't remember seeing any photos of brits or americans with hair as long as the german fashion seemed to be, from that era - anyone?

    Seems long hair that is closely trimmed/shaved around the bottom is the norm for germans. Thanks for the pictures.

    Looks like the Wehrmacht was kind of lax on hair regs, but the SS guys had thier whitewalls going on.

    I think that the singular thing about WW2 photos is that one sees, in military or civilian photos, almost no overweight or obese people.

    Hi bbanistuci.

    I've found the photos all over the web.
    Some was found in WW2 newsgroups, others in other WW2 forums, some were found at photo sites like Time/Life, and the rest was - as far as I recall - googled.
    I'm sorry that I can't be more precise.

    Cheers,

    Maria.

    Hey Y'all,

    I actually dropped in here by accident. I was surfing the web looking for pictures of men's haircuts from the WWII period, and this is where I was led. I'm heading to get a "new 'do" and wanted something a little more classy than the same haircut I've had since highschool (once I hit a quarter century I figured it was time I get a grown up haircut)

    And lo and behold, I end up here.
    I don't suppose you have any photos from the Allied side of things do you BB? Bringing in pictures of Nazis to my barber is not traditionally a way to endear ones self.



    A fun fact, my uncle flew "The Miss Anita", a P-51, through the war, and did well enough to come home and marry the REAL Miss Anita once things ended.
