A few years ago I found a small stack of American Hairdresser magazines at an antique shop. These wonderful magazines are full of pin curl setting patterns, spectacular hairstyles to try and old ads for tools and hair products that they used back then. This issue is from 1953. This one even has a hair cut and pin curl set for a little girl that I wouldn't mind getting done for myself!

This magazine is for industry professionals so there are a lot of articles about running your salon and salon equipment. If you enjoy this post, check out my other old magazine scans for more hairstyle mags.
