film blog with vintage hairstyles

I'm not sure if this is allowed but I just found this website last week and I AM IN LOVE. It's sort of a film blog but it concentrates mostly (but not all the time) on the wardrobe and set design of films with vintage/retro styles. There are tons of screencaps from these films and I'm discovering so many new movies that I want to see. My favorite are the films set in the 1940s-50s but that's b/c my favorite hairstyles come out of that period. She/He (I think it's a "she" from the impression I get) also seems to like turn-of-the-century (late 1800s-early 1900s) styles too. Anyway, I'm getting lots of inspiration from the photos and have been saving them in a file to try to replicate later on. I just thought I'd pass on the info to you lovely ladies since I'm sure some of you will love these images too!! LINK TO WEBSITE.

Check out what I mean:

From the movie Sylvia (click on the movie title link to take you to that specific entry, otherwise the photos are linked to her flickr).



From Mrs. Henderson Presents:





From Agatha Christie's Poirot:






From These Foolish Things:



From The Best of Everything:





From Desk Set:



From Hollywoodland:





From High Society:





From Charade:



Anyway, those are just some of my favorites. There's lots more but I only selected the ones with hairstyles I liked.
