Class rings were used to "go steady" - girls often used tape or yarn to make them fit or else wore them on a chain around their neck. Still have my husband's ring, that he had made smaller for me, over 58 years ago.

pin curls.comb damp hair and part into small sections. You’re going to pin each curl with a standard bobby pin, so sections must be small. Wind each curl around your finger smoothly. Pin each curl in place with a bobby pin.Gently tie a silk scarf around your hair before going to bed. In the morning remove pins and gently finger comb your hair. Letting pin curls fall loose from a side part was one of the sexiest 1940’s hairstyles.
