Looks That Work Wallach 1986 Time for a working wardrobe circa mid 1980s. This book has a few themes for that gal on the go. First, we have role models: Nancy Reagan, Elizabeth Dole, and a few more. It’s all
Always in Style with Color Me Beautiful
Submitter: Not sure which is more awful … that this book is still available at a library in our system or that one of my patrons requested it.
Holly: I think the “always” in the title is stretching it a bit! This book – this 1985 edition – is available at NINE libraries in Michigan. Whyyyyy?
The lady on the cover doesn’t actually look too bad, but I wonder what horrors await inside this thing? Anyone want to share some internal pics? (We’ll update the post if you do!) Also, I’m generally a fashion “don’t,” so don’t take my word for it that she doesn’t look bad…
A Teen’s Guide to Looking & Feeling Beautiful
Ah, the 1980s live again. This book has all the makeup and fashion advice your average teen girl needs. The shirt/vest combo looks 1970s (I say this because I had a similar outfit in 1977.

This book is your basic 1980s flashback. Note the big hair and the blue eye shadow. One of the chapters is about “gentle” coloring, I am going to go out on a limb and say this doesn’t look too gentle. This particular book was sent to the bindery in the early 1990s. Obviously, we need to preserve those excellent hair and make-up examples from the 1980s.
The Lucille Roberts
14 day makeover plan
I never heard of Lucille Roberts, but I guess she is pretty well known around New York. Roberts opened a chain of budget health clubs aimed at women in 1969. Although Roberts died in 2003 from lung cancer at only 59, her fitness clubs are still going strong in the tri-state area.

You and Your Hair Cuts, Styles, and Hints for Beautiful Hair Budd 1978 I probably picked up this book when I was a teen. This was the time that everyone wanted hair like Farrah Fawcett from the Charlie’s Angels days.
