I Got A 1950s Makeover

  • Published on Sep 27, 2018
  • So for our decades series last year we traveled back through time until the 1960s - so I decided to go back another decade and put together an entire look based on the fashion, hair and makeup trends of the 50s! What do you think of the finished look?
    A big thank you to Kayley Melissa and Gabriela Hernandez for helping us out with our midcentury makeover!

    FIVE?! There weren't 5 major tv networks until like the 90's or something...I mean there was cable in the 1980s...However CBS, NBC and ABC were the only national tv networks until FOX in the mid 80's. And I don't even think it was available nationwide right away. UPN and WB or vice versa were after I graduated high school (which was in 91) because I am that old...but they were UHF channels, not even VHF, which means if you had an analog TV, you had to flip a switch to use the higher dial and not all TVs had reasonable reception on UHF. Just the same, I'm digging your channel and you are a great researcher, which I love. You two are killing it and I am glad to have found you. Such fun!

    I like to believe that 50 or so years from now there are going to be people who are going to be re-making out styles, and using slang that we use today like "yeet" and "thot", and that thought both amuses and terrifies me
