Hair Cutting- The Basis of Artistic & Practical Hair Design by Homer Syprett and Grace Doran.

These authors were hair stylists who worked in classic films in Hollywood and had a famous beauty school in Hollywood.

This e-book is about HAIR CUTTING for 1950's hairstyles, not hair styling or curling. It includes how to hold scissors for specific styles, how to cut bangs, and instructions for the Italian Boy Cut, the Duck Tail, the Blunt Cut, and The Tailored Hair Cut.

Digitally remastered from the period source, this e-book is in PDF format and is 53 pages in length. It is 6.6MB in size. The original period book was small in size and the file looks best when viewed at 100% scale.

    Most patterns come as both A4/US LETTER and A0 size. You will need ADOBE READER, a free program, to print your e-pattern.

    For A4/US LETTER paper:

    Open the "READ-ME-FIRST" File for instructions on printing and piecing your pattern. Print the PDF file on your home printer, cut off on the lines given, and tape them together. Then you cut and use your pattern just as you would a normal home sewing pattern.

    For A0 size:

    This is sent away to a copyshop and printed on big sheets for you. We print A0 pattern sheets at great prices at Pattern Printing Company

Carefully Researched

All of our patterns are carefully researched and based on either public domain materials or our own creations. Lauren applies her decades worth of practical application of historical fashion and technical skills when making these patterns, and often supplies watch points for making. External helps are available on Wearing History on YouTube and on Wearing History Blog to help you learn to sew history.
