RETRO-SPECTIVE THE DECADES PAST:
Beauty & Cosmetics In The 1960s
Summer can make a pretty hairdo look like a clump of seaweed, fresh out of the water, especially if the hair has little body to begin with. Just the trip from home to the office is time enough to make it fall limply about the face.
Vacation presents its problems, too. You want to sail, swim or play tennis. Then there's the rush back to the hotel, a session with rollers and hair spray and an uncertain hope that your hair will look attractive for that magical evening of dancing.
There's a sure-fire cure for summer hairdo blues, and a simple one, too. Wear a wig. You'll be able to come home from a swimming date and appear beautifully coiffed for a formal evening. If you own more than one wig, you can wear fashion and make-up shades you never could carry off before.
Your own hair should be cut short and simply styled so that the wig will fit comfortably on top.
It's exciting to own both a blonde and a brunette wig, each styled differently, suggest experts. The dark-haired girl, for example, can wear bangs on her blonde wig, or bring out her own dark hair from under to give the light wig dark streaks.
This hair change-will open the door to a new world of color for the brunette. Her dark-haired wig can be set in a more dramatic fashion for elaborate formal occasions, and she can play up the elegant effect with more brilliant shades in clothes and make-up. Wigs of real hair can be matched exactly to your own shade, and they can be shampooed and restyled at the beauty salon. 1962 Beauty Trends Wigs: No more bad hair – Wigs, falls, ¾ caps, ponytails.
IN SUMMER, when exposure becomes the rule and healthy girl watching is practiced by the male contingent, attractive grooming is an imperative. How do the experts suggest you maintain your looks in the summer? Here's how:
Hot-weather skin will often be overly moist or oily or both. Specially treated paper "squares," when pressed to the face, remove surface grime and absorb excess moisture and oil without disturbing make-up.
The new transparent pressed powders in compacts are handy for touch-ups without building up color.
A word about sunlight. The heat of the sun can draw oil to the surface of the skin, which may darken make-up. Perspiration often has the same effect. To compensate, wear clear, bright shades of lipstick and blusher, or the frosted, silvery tones.
What should a woman look for in a sun-tan lotion? Today lotions come in formulations that take into consideration not only the texture of the skin but the degree to which a woman wishes to tan. Moisturizing agents are incorporated in many sun-tan products. Every woman should be able to acquire the depth of tan she wants without drying or flaking her skin.

A wonderful way to contour your face in summer to play up your bone structure or diminish an overly long nose or a jowled look—is to apply a frosted blusher, which contrasts brightly with a tanned skin. Apply the blusher, in either cream or powder form, to the tip of the nose to shorten it, on cheekbones to define them, or under the chin area to minimize it. Then watch your features take on added interest.
What to do about unsightly circles caused by sunglasses? Consider them a blessing in disguise. First, they indicate that you are protecting the area under your eyes, which along with the throat is most prone to dryness, and you are helping to keep the area lightened, free from shadows. A simple blending of a concealer cream and foundation will eliminate such rings. So if you fancy big sun shades, feel free to wear them. Revlon Beauty Expert Stan Lawrence, 1967

Fruit Colors Seen In Summer Lipstick
Some years ago there were hard and fast rules about lipstick. One shade was for blondes, a darker one for brunettes, and redheads did the best they could with which ever of the two didn't exactly clash with their tresses.
Today it's still advisable to choose a lipstick that generally harmonizes with your coloring, but a full range of hues is available for us all. And since the beauty conscious woman won't select her clothes in a shade that, is wrong for her general coloring, she may also choose her lipstick with fashion predominantly in mind.
We all look forward to the luscious colors that make summer fashions fun to wear. And as new fashion hues crop up each year, so do new shades in make-up, created especially to complement them.
This year is no exception. Couturiers are emphasizing enticing fruit colors for warm weather wear, such as pink melon, rose grape, apricot, orange, cherry and strawberry. 1962
