What Does Your Hair Bow Say About You/How Much You Want A Husband?

What does your hair bow say about your romantic life? This is a scan of a page appearing in the March 15, 1944 issue of Life as part of a piece entitled “High School Fads.”

Kind of strange to think this is the ’50s equivalent of the plastic jelly bracelet game–would two bows indicate she let Bobby come on her face at the Everly Brothers concert? The ’50s were different.
