Hair/Make Up/Accessories - 1961-1970

There is so much interest in the 1960s and it is quite well documented (X, X, X, X) so I am kind of tempted to skip bits:).  Still here you go:

1. Dramatic Eyes (emphasising the eyes is not very decade specific even though that thick eyeliner is kind of 60s) and Pale Lipsticks (X, X). Also earrings, equally dramatic.

2. But even cooler to hide the dramatic eyes behind sunglasses. A bit of a Satyajit Ray thing.

3&4: Let’s wear headbands (no more ribbons and plaits, leave that to the kids) and funky bead/plastic earrings. Also fringe - let’s all be Sadhana.

5&6: Yay for scarves on the head

7&8: Double yay for scarves as scarves.

9&10: OK that hair is not epic by 60s standards (X, X) but large flowers (X, X) and a variant of "Love in Tokyo" rubber bands - right on trend.

Things for which I didn’t have a decent pic Handbags [X, X, X.]. Or the wristwatch. Maybe even the a matchy-matchy telephone?!

And of course in another nod to the 30s, sleeveless blouse = armband [X, X]

The Sari Blouse: 1941-1950

After the sleeveless and puff sleeve blouses of the 1930s as well as styles like butterfly sleeves, the blouse styles of the 1940s are a lot less fitted and often have more than a few details like piping, buttons etc. Soft collars, already seen in the late 1930s, were also popular. You also see a lot of sweetheart necklines (pics 6 and 7) in the latter half of the decade which continued well into the 1950s. Sometimes of course, as in every decade, blouses look very similar to our times (pic 9, right down to the pleated trim on the sleeves).  

By the 1940s, it is increasingly rare to see the pallu draped over the head styling of the sari. 

For sari blouse styles at the beginning of the decade, see Sesh Uttar (X) (1942), towards the end Andaz (1949).
