There’s something about old ads that make us long for days gone by — and we’re not just talking about the low retail prices. There was a level of sophistication that we rarely see these days. It seems like women with perfectly coiffed and wearing chic gowns have been replaced with half-naked, photoshopped wannabes .
But thanks to the internet, we’re only a click away from reliving the glory days or advertisements. We did some digging on our favorite Tumblr page, Vintage Black Glamour , and unearthed a few swoon-worthy ads for your view pleasure.
Happy Throwback Thursday (#TBT)!
A 1969 Revlon ‘Colorsilk’ advertisement.
A 1976 advertisement for a fragrance called Noir.
A 1970s Ultra Sheen advertisement.
Whitney Houston in a 1980s Max Factor ad.
Iman in a 1976 Avon advertisement. She is wearing a dress by Giorgio Sant’ Angelo.
Helen Williams in a 1960 Helene Curtis ad.
Beverly Johnson in a 1970s Max Factor advertisement.
A 1965 Ultra Sheen ad.Aren’t you glad these vintage ads don’t look like this...
