That Girl

I agree, she's lovely already, especially great eyes & smile. I wonder who she is/was?

A Real Honey

She's pretty as can be and soon, she'll be sporting a lacquered, foot-high beehive hairdo.

Don't sit too close

I've seen this Twilight Zone before. Try not to scream ...

It's a Toni!

Looks like she's giving herself a home permanent. Wrapping the curlers in the plastic wrap that was supplied in the home perm kit was the way to make the curling solution work faster and keep the hair from drying out. The solution smelled awful and burned sensitive scalps. (You may recognize the voice of experience here.)

Beauty / Beholder

I don't believe that lovely young woman needed any cosmetological wizardry to accentuate her natural beauty. Leave that lovely hair alone.

Clusters of Concentrated Melaninized Cells

I'm a sucker for women with freckles, she's a cutie. Clear plastic hair protection is an added bonus. The clincher would be having clear vinyl covers on her sofa and chair cushions.
