Get hair like Veronica Lake: do the peek-a-boo! Veronica Lake was known for her long blonde tresses, which she wore slightly curled covering half of her face. The look became known as the peek-a-boo, and was so famous that Lake had to publicly change her look during the Forties as the hair style was a health hazard for women working for the war effort.
