Things are still cute in 1950 as in the picture above of Joan, Bill, (?) and Moe.
But by 1956 the mini-bang had arrived.
Joan, Bill, Barbara in the back.
Moe and Jane in front.
1954. The Brackmans. Can you tell our Dad cuts our hair?
This model in the Ladies' Home Journal in 1949 probably didn't get her hair cut by her dad. The look, however, is the same. It must have been more fashionable than I recall.
