From today you can see Forties Frocks' first snoods available on their Etsy shop.
They are fantastic for that effortless vintage 1940's look.
You don't have to worry about spending hours trying to get the perfect forties curls in your locks, just two rolls or a faux fringe in the front and pin in the snood as shown.
Snoods became popular and essential during the war as women filled the vacancies in factories normally held by men who were called up to fight. The government wanted to deter women from wearing their hair down due to health and safety as they were now operating heavy and dangerous machinery. They even got the silver screen starlets to fashion up-dos, to encourage the working women to be safe at work.
