Photographer Nina Leen perfectly captured these set of photos of triplets getting a haircut back in the 1950’s. I stumbled across these photos on the web, and was instantly so in love with them I just had to share them with you. I’ve always had an affinity towards anything vintage. I listen to music from era’s 40’s-80’s (Dad finds me extra cool because of this), watching period films, collecting old items (old records, a typewriter, hand me downs from my grandmother, a vintage travel bag, etc) — So if you’ve known me for a while, it wouldn’t come as a surprise that these photos by Nina Leen has captured my attention.

Gorgeous, aren’t they? It tells the perfect story of little girls turning into young women, in such a simple and effortless manner. The photos alone make me want to know more about these three young women, what they’re like, where they’re from, if they married and had children of their own. But that’s the beauty of vintage photographs, they’re worth a thousand words, yet they will always remain a beautiful mystery.
Here are the triplets years later, all grown up and doing a bit of modeling in the 60’s…
I hope you guys enjoyed these photos as much as I have! Hopefully I’ll be able to share more vintage photographs, or anything vintage for that matter, when I can!
Have a great Tuesday night!
