Hi extended family !
Went out for girls luncheon yesterday with girls that I used to work with ( we known as the old teasers ) there's always maltesers on table amongst the good and unhealthy stuff , mostly unhealthy !!
Topic for day "bad hair days "
We've all had them ladies as well as some of you blokes out there !
When I lived in England as a child/teenager my mum used to have a "clubman"" call at the house each week , and mum used to put 10shillings into this hairdressers club and when there was a certain amount could have your hair done at the co-op in Nottingham . Quite a la de da place at the time , plus with being co-op mum used to earn points on her dividend .
So mum and often had shampoo and set there .
I turned thirteen mum took me to co-op have a perm , now don't know whether you ladies heard of the electric perms . There was a electric pole about 4ft long and had these like butterfly clamps all the way up the pole . So my hair was set in rollers then the clamps were placed on top of the rollers , they were very heavy , hairdresser did one side of my hair first , the weight of the clamps my head hung to one side till the other side was done to even the weight out . Looked like an alien . After about seemed like hours everything removed from hair , and hairdresser coned my hair out into a beautiful pageboy style , everyone I met said how beautiful my hair was even strangers in the street stopped and asked where I'd had my hair done ?Mum bought me a hair net to keep it in place . So for a whole week I didn't wash it , then when I did WOW my hair frizzed up look like a huge frizzy mop , nothing I could do would tame it . I'd go to school and be teased relentlessly called funniest names , so I wouldn't go to school . Eventually I had to go because mum and dad found out I was plying truant . So bit by bit I cut it off about half inch a week till mum to me back to the co-op where they cut it really short . Then I looked like one of my brothers !!!
Have a look on net see if you pick up electric perms on there ,
Have you ever had one ladies ?
