Nostalgia



   StormCnter  Remember wave clips for finger waves? Neither do I, they were before my time, but my Mother knew how to do it. "Downton Abbey" had finger waves all over the illustrious heads.

   Gram77  I remember my grandmother using them. Think they were used in the 40s.

   StormCnter  Did your grandmother also style her hair around a "rat"? My mother and aunts did, too. The "rats" were cylindrical padded rolls for the forties look.

   Gram77  She sure did. And something else I remember was how permanents were done in those times.

   StormCnter  Oh Gram...permanents. I have hair without even a hint of a natural curl. It's baby fine and straight. When I was little, Mother agonized over my hair because no caring mother sent her little girl out into the world with uncurled hair. So, she gave me Tonettes, the child version of Toni home permanents. I spent many days with frizzed hair before it finally settled into something handleable. As an adult, I say Thank God for electric curling irons.

   MeiDei  I have baby fine hair w/a natural wave if cut properly. I remember those salon perms w/their wired rollers as well as the Toni/Tonettes - & the smell : ). I embarrass myself using salon hairdryers - the heat puts me to sleep & the bang of my head against he hood startles me awake & those around me w/a variety of reactions from raised eyebrows of annoyance to giggles. Later in life I used a Frosting kit as my husband hated the abundance of red highlights my hair had once the summer towhead faded. Chemo put away my curling irons, sometimes I'm glad of it, sometimes not.
