Beauty School Circa 1940's By Nina Leen


I was browsing through Messy Nessy Chich's archive when I stumbled upon these images from the Helena Rubinstein beauty school (circa 1940) photographed by Nina Leen and I was just like: "OMFG! These images are freakin' insane (but in a good way, just so you know)! Not gonna lie though, some of the photos are a bit eerie like the one with this huge curling apparatus (not sure if it really is) that has gazillion cords. However, it is also very amazing to know that unlike before - beautifying in this day and age is now waaaaaay more uncomplicated.


All photos via the LIFE archives, full photo stories by Nina Leen here and here. First seen on Messy Nessy Chic
