 Bad Girls Go Everywhere

Tuesday, July 28 @ 7pm   (Right here in the salon)

Join us for socializing, cookie eating and wine drinking. Oh yeah, maybe we’ll talk about the book, too.

This month’s book? Bad Girls Go Everywhere by Jennifer Scanlon, a stellar biography of Helen Gurley Brown, the original Cosmo Girl & author of Sex and the Single Girl in 1962 (the foremother of Sex and the City). Like Mad Men? Read this book to get the real story of the times… See you there.


So, my obsesssion with Mad Men , the series about advertising execs and their families in the early sixties, has begun anew!  If you were in the salon last summer, you’ll remember that Tyler and I were constantly talking about the clothes, the makeup, the stories and the hair (yes, the hair!) portrayed with spot-on accuracy in the show.  The first season is out on dvd, catch up and watch the new season along with us (on Sunday nights at 10pm) — it is smart tv from one of the writers of the Sopranos — unfortunately HBO passed on this series — who lost their job over that decision, I wonder!

Last season there were several shots of Betty Draper, the lead character’s wife, in pin curls, and shots of her neighboring wives in the infamous curlers and scarf get-up that some of us remember seeing in our childhoods. 
Here’s another of my faves from the show, Joan Holloway, office manager & femme fatale, power broker & cool chick.
All of which has made me wonder about handheld blowdryers and how hairstyling has evolved over the last 50 years — how did they get these looks without the cool stuff we have today — products and tools?  Tyler says they used pins, curlers and combs. 
We’ll be experimenting in the salon on the staff, so you never know what we’ll look like when you come in.  Check back soon for a brief history of blowdryers & hairstyling!
