Style icon: Wanda Jackson

The queen of rock 'n roll will be touring in Europe and she'll visit my hometown, so guess what.. I'm going!! I can't wait to see her, Wanda was and is such a cool, great, cute and beautiful woman. I have never been a big fan of female singers but she's definitely changed that. 

Look at that cute dance and amazing dress! Such a beauty.

Style icon: Mamie van Doren

We all know the blonde bombshells from the fifties like Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield. Their pictures are so well known that I'd like to show you another, maybe less famous but nevertheless gorgeous actress and model from the fifties: Mamie van Doren.

Mamie van Doren (her real name is Joan Lucille Olander) was born in 1931 in South Dakota and she's still alive and kickin'. One of her best known movies is High School Confidential! (1958) You can watch the whole movie on youtube here. I think Mamie had a great sense of style and amazing hair of course, just take a look at her.

I mean come on, that hair..

And with some male co-stars

With Clark Gable, swoon, in Teacher's Pet (1958)

We all know Lauren Bacall, perfect hair, perfect eyebrows, always. 

Ultimate hair envy

And here's a relative simple way to recreate this hairstyle when you use pin curls. This is the same pattern I always use for my hairstyle.
