Mad Men hair

I am mad for Mad Men. I am Madly in love with the Men of Mad Men ( mostly just Don Draper.) But mostly, I am madly, madly in love with the hair in Mad Men. Can you tell I’m obsessed by the sheer number of links to DIY hair posts that I have written and hair tutorials inspired by Mad Men on HTHG??? Check em out to get your Mad Men hair flair. Let’s talk about it.

Don Draper inspired men’s hair trends back to the early 60’s with perfectly neat and sculpted classy man haircuts, not a hair out of place.

(Pomade or brilliantine and a boar bristle brush is the key)







Betty brings it with the perfect polished blonde, set in shiny soft vintage waves, or up in a sweet, shiny bun on top of her head.








Joanie brought a new meaning to the word ‘Redhead’ and I can’t tell you how many clients of mine request her perfect crimson shade. And don’t even get me started on her fabulous 1960’s french twists and mini-bouffants. 






The perfect sleek bob of Megan’s has never gone out of style. A great tutorial for how to get Don and Megan hair can be found at!







And sweet, innocent Peggy. She really comes around and shows her balls in the last season. I was glad to see her ditch the curly ponytail for a more mature bump-n-flip.

I love these characters and I wish I was one of them. I covet their clothes, hair, and furniture. If I was in the show, I would be Megan. Who would you be?????

Here is another cool article in the New York Times about Mad Men hair.
