We're Obsessed With These Vintage Hair And Beauty Ads (PHOTOS)

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)!
