Quick History of Nails: 1960s

Take a look at the quick history of nails: 1960s.

f6b29fffdee1942826d6577adba772dcThe 1960s was the beginning of the youthful takeover.  Old-fashioned ideals, fashion and beauty trends were being left in the dust. Hemlines became higher, and women were becoming more empowered that ever. This empowering movement could be seen in clothing, beauty and even the Hollywood stars that wore big hair like Farrah Fawcett!

Although the colors of clothing became more bold and patterned, unlike the 1950s, women were ditching the red nails are jumping right into the soft and natural looking pastels, thanks to the Hippie influence.

A great milestone in the beauty industry:

  • Ombre effect glasses. Let your glasses do the work and gain compliments with this stylish trend. Here is a style fact: Ombre is the effect when a color goes from darker to lighter.

Quick History of Nails: 1950s

woman-applying-nail-varnish-taken-by-Photographic-Advertising-Limited-c.-1950.Take a look at the quick history of nails: 1950s.

The world of nails began to see a dynamic change in the 50s with influences flowing directly from Hollywood’s silver screen filled with beautiful and picture-perfect actresses including the legendary, Marilyn Monroe.

This was a decade known for its glamorous appearance from feminine dresses to stylish heels because nothing was exempt from the glam of the 50s—including nails. With the help of big brands like Max Factor and Maybelline, women were very interested in having beautiful nails like the Hollywood celebrities they admired.

During this time, women were often shaping their nails in an almond/oval shape to keep their nails feminine, coloring their nails with bold reds, French manicures, or completely natural.

There were big accomplishments during this time including the availability to find nail polish at drugstores and the wonderful invention of artificial nails (press-on nails)—by accident.

Other great inventions and milestones in the beauty industry included:marilyn-monroe-black

  • 1954- Philadelphia, PA dentist Fred Slack invented the first artificial nail after breaking his fingernail at work. He did so by experimenting with chemicals, materials and dental acrylics which he placed over his broken nail. When he perfected the invention, Fred and his brother Tom, patented their product and began the company Patti Nails. This invention later became more practical in the 1970s.
