By now, you've probably seen these 11 hilarious beauty tips from the book Secrets of Loveliness, published in 1964. The book taught young girls how to achieve "loveliness" by highlighting the appropriate fashions, hairstyles and grooming tips of the day. 

From the same book, can you pass this quiz about acceptable fashion trends and fads? You have to guess whether a fad is "fun," "sloppy," or "taboo." My, how times have changed... Good luck!
