I Got A 1950s Makeover

  • Published on Sep 27, 2018
  • So for our decades series last year we traveled back through time until the 1960s - so I decided to go back another decade and put together an entire look based on the fashion, hair and makeup trends of the 50s! What do you think of the finished look?
    A big thank you to Kayley Melissa and Gabriela Hernandez for helping us out with our midcentury makeover!

      Totally worth the wait... I felt as if I was in that decade... It was a real mind trip and I truly believe it's because of the research u did. Loved it!! Thank you so much.

      I just rewatched this video and I can confirm that some of those textbooks AKA the thicc one at 0:19 are actually used when teaching a Historic Dress course at universityπŸ˜‚ And it does have pretty accurate dates and info too

    I have 2 thoughts
    1. Instagram conspiracy theory accounts will take a picture and "is this proof of time travel?"
    2. Saf is one of those RUcliprs that will hover above the drama, along with Cristine, Corrinne, Rob, r/ RUcliprs, and others
    Edit: I have a third! Her relationship with Birkenstocks is like Cristine with David's Tea

    I just found your RUclip Channel recently and by accident and am I ever Happy I did. I Love it, it's just great, and so much fun to watch and I love the decades series so much.
    I really hope you do the 40's, 30's and 20's too, it wld be so great to learn the history of what they wore and why.
    You said you're Scandinavian (You never said what Country your family's from) but it would be really cool if you dressed up in traditional clothing from whatever country. My dad's Danish, his parents met on the boat from Denmark to the U.S., my Grandfather had been in Canada for I don't kno how many years then he went back to Denmark to see family. So my dad's a 1st generation Canadian. If your Danish heritage you can get info & likely tradition clothes from Solvang, California which is not far from LA I think. I have a traditional outfit little girl's wore, the sad thing is it pretty much still fits me. I was 7 when it was given to me & I'm 46 now, only my boobs are too big & it's for the shirt it came with, the skirt's too short & the apron still fits me too it's just short.
    It's all too short but I can wear everything & I was an average size 7 year old.
    It's So Embarrassing but my family thinks it's hilarious.
    I'm sure you can get traditional clothes for any Scandinavian country. At least Norway & Sweden, Finland is so different then the rest of Scandinavia but they may be able to help you in Solvang.
    Other countries wld be great too but to start w/ your Heritage wld be so interesting.

    You did a wonderful job! I love these decade style videos! I also follow
    Karolina Ε»ebrowska here on RUclip and she also thought you did a wonderful job (Reviewing Safiya Nygaard's "Vintage Makeovers")! Zebrowska also mentions that she would be open to helping you with earlier eras if you were interested! I love watching both of you guys and thought it would be awesome if you guys could make that happen. If not, that's ok too! Thank you for your videos, Safiya! Enjoy the spring weather!
