Wednesday Words

We saw this vintage
Duchess Remote Control
 Permanent Waving Machine
from Helen Curtis
on one of our stops with the boys one day....

And YES.....
it scared us!

The hair might be the richest ornament of women...
but this contraption
 looks more like a method of torture!!

I can't imagine how the women's hair didn't get burned to a crisp with that! lol.

It is a wonder women didn't have terrible hairdo's back then! I'm glad we don't have to go through all of that!!

The things we women do to look good! I've never seen one of these, except in old movies. Torture is a good word for it!


Oh this is so funny! I remember mother going for her "permanent" in the beauty parlor, in the late 50's and even 60's, I think, lol..This machine is sure scary, hehehe
