1950s hairstyles embroidered traditional gender roles. While the women's hair was long, curved and high maintenance, the men wore their hair in short, military-like cuts, or weighted down and away from the face. Men's hair that touched the ears went against the grain and was even illegal in some parts of the United States
Movie Stars like Elizabeth Taylor, Lauren Bacall and Marilyn Monroe all worn curly updos, while famous men like James Stewart, Cary Grant and President Dwight Eisenhower wore hair in short, heavy cuts. Younger men had a little more latitude, but not much more; some emulated James Dean and Elvis in growing a pompadour or pompadour-like hairstyle.
For women in the 1950s, hair required a lot of work. If your hair was straight, the easiest way to curl it was to wear many small crowns (and / or rolls) in the hair and then let them set for hours or even the night's sleep. Women can also go to the hairdresser and get a permanent one, which would put the curls in their hair until it grew out or (with some processes) larger veil with laundry. Bangs were very popular among women; Women curled them to match the rest of the hair.
For African American women, their naturally tricky or wet hair was seen down. Many women had their hair chemically straightened or relaxed, while African-American men kept their hair short. The 1950s hairstyles for African Americans reflected today's popular styles, with the limitations that came with relaxed hair.
As the 1950s progressed, women's hairstyles rose in volume, and stylized waves declined in favor of larger hairstyles, such as hives. These required hair spray and blow dry to maintain their volume.
Debbie Reynolds in I love Melvin. In the 1950s, curly hair was fashionable. The 1950s saw the hardware invention. Unlike today's hair dryers, a hair dryer in the 1950s was a big cap, attached to a large tube for a heater. The cap went over his head; when the heater was plugged in and turned on, the heat passed through the tube and into the lid. This was essentially a home version of the large tapered hair windows that you would see in a salon.
Handheld hair dryers and curling bars became more popular in the late 1950s. Handheld hair dryers offered less precision for the average user, but could make hair bigger and bigger.
For men, electric shavers also grew more popular in the 1950s. Men started shaving instead of going to the hairdressing salon; This also made it possible for the hair to become even shorter in the back, leading to the iconic "flat" hairstyle with a very short back with long hair on the crown of the head.
The hairstyles of the 1950s for men were limited to the flat or pumped hair combed away from the forehead. Adventurous young men would go for a pompadour or a quiff, a combination of plate and pompadour hair cut. DA (the other's ass) haircut was popular among young men, although it was frowned upon by more traditional members of society.
Both men and women had short hair. Due to the high maintenance of the curved appearance, many women with straight hair retained their hair in the jaw or shoulder length. As far as I know, it was very rare to see grown men with mop peaks, or "bowl cuts" in the 1950s. Even young boys mimicked their elders with short hair.
Some young women, like teddy girls and butch lesbians, went for a more androgynous or masculine look. In the 1950s, this was very rare and even risky: a masculine hairstyle on a woman could cause her to be arrested or attacked for supposed homosexuality and looked like a perversion.
