Hey, Moms, Remember the Beauty Shop?

Before, during and after.

There are still ladies that go to “the beauty shop” to get their hair “done.”  Remember when “done” meant that your hair was tortured into a “Do” and then shellacked into place?

I have great memories of going to the beauty shop with my grandma. I remember the first time grandma let me get highlights. Geez, grandma, look what you started!

I loved sitting in the beauty shop, waiting for my grandmother, listening to my grandma and Inez gossip. Do you have any beauty shop memories to share?

Frizz city! Didn’t stop me from sporting a perm for most of the 80s!

    When I was in zambia I used to go to get a cut as this nice salon & my favorite part was the strong dark fingers massaging my head during the shampoo – bliss!

    • Sheesh, can’t type for crap today.

      ….that attached to the vacuum cleaner & somehow cut your hair. Not a particularly good look when finished, but who am I to judge.

  4. I don’t ever remember going with my mom or grandmother, but I do remember the first time I went for an “up-do” for a sixth-grade dance. Heh.
