Just One More 50's Photo
I won't bore you with 50's pictures after this one but it just made me think of the difference in the way we did our hair then and now. I set my own hair with bobby pins as most everyone did except we called it rolling our hair. I set my hair most every night while in bed in the dark before going to sleep. A neighbor lady on each side would ask me to roll their hair. I hated it but as a teen you didn't say no to an older person and you certainly didn't expect any pay. On school days after taking the pin curls down and combing it out we wore a head scarf walking to school so our hair didn't fall from the dampness. Once in a while I see a lady in Wal*Mart with a head scarf on but I don't think I even own one now. Bobby pins? I have a few left in a drawer somewhere but it's been many a year since I used one.
