This item is a great resource for those who are Flapper and Depression Era historical reenactment enthusiasts, beauticians, stage, theatre and opera hairdressers, students of historical hair care techniques and recipes, etc! An excerpt:
"Gentlemen's hairdressing...,especially in these modern and more knowledgeable days, embraces not only the technique of shaving and haircutting, but involves all sorts of extra attentions, such as shampooing, singeing, frictions, electrical and other treatments, massage of the skin and scalp...In the following pages the operator is given an opportunity to study the technique, ideas, and advice of experts, thus saving that tremendous amount of wasted time which necessarily accompanied the old-fashioned long period of apprenticeship...
...Before a house can be built the architect has to prepare plans; before a dress can be made the designer has to create a design, so with hairdressing. Before the child's hair can be properly and scientifically cut the artist has to create a style, or mode, suitable to the various contours of the head and face and the age of the small clients. The final ensemble marks the craftsmanship of the operator who, maybe, exhibits the traits of a hairdressing genius.
These instructions in children's hairdressing, as apart from mere haircutting, are so illustrated as to act as a guide to those operators who aspire to become first-class hairdressers..."
