Love both the hair styles - cute and look easy to care for. FanSee

the book those styles come from was published in the 1980s, the salon was on the verge of tossing it out due to old-age. Glad we got there first and glad you like.

(Deleted comment)
thank you, they're both actually circa the 1980s, when the styling book they appear in was published, and yet, still looking good.

Like the hair styles too... super cute!

thank you!! and you know what's funny, they're both from a hairstyling book from the 1980s.

Almost a Life by B. H. Friedman
I really enjoyed this book. a historical novel, which documents a journalist telling his story about writing a memoir about a fictional photographer within the very non-fictional world of New York in the 1970's.


I'm going to look this up.

if you haven't found it yet, let me know because I would love to send you my copy. I won't read it again, I bought it used, off ebay, anyway, and sharing is good. Okay?
