Hair accessories in the vintage 50s era are commonly scarves, bandanas and flowers. The pictures above show how they are worn with various hairstyles. I have given information on these 3 ladies in case you want to check out there tutorials to give you ideas. I am not that good with hair myself so I stick to a simple ponytail with hair scarf or flowers.

Sophie the lady that makes the hair flowers can be also found on Etsy,Facebook and Instagram and often runs a stall at Lou lous vintage fair. She not only makes flowers but shes is a milliner and makes bespoke hats as well as other hair accessories.
