The Good Old Days 2 of 2)


Continued from part 1.


Here are some more comments which give a wonderful window into 1950s, 60s and 70s hairdressing at home.

 (Note: photos here are unrelated to the comments and are from various places on the net. If they are yours and you would prefer them to be removed, please send an email. I have also removed commenters last names since they commented on other boards). 

So here is part 2. Enjoy!




Even better was sleeping with a dryer over your curlers ...




I cant believe the number of posts about sleeping with a soft bonnet dryer and curlers every night. Probably not a good idea from a safety point of view but I have to admit I have done it occasionally. Certainly did not seem to be a huge concern in the old days...





Sometimes even drying all night wasn't enough ...



Its better than counting sheep ...




And there were other reasons for sleeping under the dryer ...




Of course dryers were really meant for daytime use




A real luxury was a stand hair dryer ...




Nothing works as well brush rollers ...  



Some of the vintage ones from those days really are the best rollers!



And we all have our favorite rollers ...









Some were best for sleeping ...








Even hairdressers liked brush rollers.








Of course not all hairdressers had a positive experience with brush rollers ...




Actually it was fun if you were good at it!








Of course some weren't as good at setting as others ....




I still use them ...




















So thats a bit of glimpse into wonderful world of doing hair at home in the 50s, 60s and 70s. Hope you enjoyed it!
