HISTORY OF HAIRSTYLING
MY FIRST 18 YEARS
I was born bald & really didn't have
much hair until 5 years old.
I sometimes wore braided pigtails to school.
My Mother curled my hair
with rags on Saturdays so I would have
a pretty head full of curls for church.
In 3rd grade all that came to a halt
when I was given my first home perm.
Stinky and a painful day of agony.
My Grandma Minnie treated me to a salon permanent so
I would have a great hairstyle for 8th grade graduation.
They timed the perm with the wall clock. Oops!!!
The battery was dead. My hair was badly burned.
Not a good look for a special occasion.
Finally that came to an end in high school.
I began getting curls in another way.
wear a curler bonnet downtown on Saturday when we'd meet to hangout.
Had to have a little bit of this . . .
so we could do this . . .
Some of us were lucky to have one of these.
No hand held hairdryers yet.
Finally a miracle invention appeared in stores.
No more sleeping in curlers.
Just plug it in, heat, curl, wait 20 to 30 minutes,
remove curlers, brush out. Instant beauty!
Thanks for letting me share my memories with you!
