Though it did little to enhance her career, Veronica Lake adopted a new hairstyle at the height of America’s involvement in World War II. Women who fashioned themselves after her iconic hair-over-the-eye look were running into trouble at work when they replaced the men in factories: their hair would get caught in the machinery. As part of her war effort, Veronica pulled back her hair.
