Oh, Betty Draper!
Okay, okay...January Jones as Betty Draper, but you get our point. Vintage style dream!
Even at her most questionable moments, we still can't help but shimmy with excitement over every outfit and hairstyle! Her ability to be so put together on a daily basis deserves an award in itself (thanks the Emmy nominated Mad Men hair and wardrobe team!).
In honor of the season 7 premiere of Mad Men, we just had to bestow some tribute on the lovely, Betty Draper, our hair icon.
Lets start with Season 1 and the refined Betty Draper at her best. The earrings, outfit and the hair. Oh! The hair! Beautifully coiffed and smooth brushed out roller set. Isn't it magical what rollers and back combing can do?
And while we would never describe Betty as the sporty type, she definitely has always shown us how to stylishly look like we might play a sport. Who knew a bun could be sporty?
Remember when the Drapers took a trip to Italy and Betty went all 60’s Euro chic on us? If you look a bit closer, you’ll spot a bow within a bow. Yep, its pretty genius.
Always knowing when to keep things very classy, Betty opted for a side swept updo topped with a golden brooch for Rogers daughters wedding.
And if you ever cared to know what an old-school wash and set looked like… Women would get this done at least once every week or two to keep that refined 50’s style.
By season 5, Betty Draper is Betty Francis and is trying to break free of her atypical looking housewife image by dyeing her hair a darker shade. As soon she comes through the door her oldest son Bobby see’s her and yells, “You look ugly”. Bobby might’ve been harsh, but he’s right. It was awful.
Luckily she listened to the kid, relaxed and went back to her right shade. Even better she is opted for a relaxed curl.
Now, season 7 has rolled in with bright colors and a glorious bouffant hairdo. Gotta wonder what fashion heights Mrs.Francis will be taking us to this season!
And just for fun...remember that time Betty shot some birds in her backyard?
Hey, every girl's gotta have her bad ass moment!
