New York Times, November 7, 1960.

Glamour Courses Are Held at Salon

Most women are downright babes in the wood when it comes to applying make-up despite years of trying. Almost every face has some feature or area that make-up can help. When applied clumsily, make-up can accentuate the deficiencies in a face, not conceal them.

Realizing that many women are unable to learn without professional instruction, Helena Rubinstein is now offering daily classes in glamour and corrective make-up in her salon at 655 Fifth Avenue. They are held Mondays through Fridays from 2:30 to 4 p.m. and on Saturdays from 1 to 2:30 p.m. A single lesson costs $5; a private lesson is $10.

Appointments may be made by telephoning ELdorado 5-2100 or writing the Helena Rubinstein salon.
