In need of a little body in your hair?

Spotted on a recent visit to a local museum!

Even I would be hard pressed to be convinced to utilise this machine in the interests of beauty. I doubt very much that consuming any liquids was allowed during this procedure, which looks not only excruciating, but life endangering too!

OH MY GOD SARAH! I have seen one of these, and it wasn't in a museum (unless you consider the 80 year old beautician, Dorothy Gaskins a museum curator in her "beauty parlor)! She would use it to this day, I was told, if she could find anyone brave enough to sit under it! Loved this!

Note to users of this machine. Make sure your hair is entirely dry or there is a risk or electrocution. Holy hand grenades that looks dangerous.

OMG that is hilarious. Geesh, I'd be scared I wouldn't make it out of there alive.

OMG, is that something plugged into her arm? What was that about beauty without cruelty?

I have seen one of these at my local museum. I was pretty impressed by it... and pretty terrified.

WOW, the things women did to look "beautiful" back then!! Glad I live now!

Glad I look good in long straight hair.

My 95 year old aunt was a hair dresser (beutician)years ago and used one of these. Her customers rode the train from far away to come to her salon for a perm! It looks like torture! *LOL*
