Looking for a history-of-fashion art book, please!

I'm looking for a nice art book covering fashion and (particularly) hairstyles, both men's and women's, in America in the 30s, 40s, and/or 50s. This is a gift for a hairstylist, so pictures are key - the text is much less important. Price range up to $200. Thanks!

Based on some swing-dance websites: did you see this? Based on the YouTube preview it looks like it has decent art from then and now.

Okay I don't have a specific book to recommend, but TASCHEN puts out amazing ( pricey!) art books, look for used copies. Following that my second place to look would be Metropolitan Museum Of Art collection books, the costume department puts on a lot of shows and a browse through their site or Amazon might lead to some ...leads.
