my mother made me get a pixie cut when I was young. I hated it! But she and my dad both worked and she didn't have time to mess with it. Just wash and go with a pixie. Who remembers sleeping in brush rollers? OMG I wish we'd have the tools for hair they do now

I always admired Audrey Hepburn's looks, so classic and beautiful, with a sweet but elegant face!

Marianne Frederick Halterman, I had to sleep in those brush rollers. They were horrible. The goop was Dippity-Do. Used to use it on my bangs, and then tape them down so they'd stay straight. The first hand held hair dryer was a godsend.

Yes, Kodi06, I remember brush rollers, with the plastic pics to hold them in place....and how did we get used to sleeping on them? Frilly curler caps? Portable hair dryers with bouffant caps. How about the goop that we used to get in a jar which had the consistency of egg white and we slopped that on our hair and then wrapped the hair around a roller, what was that called?

I had a bouffant, a DA, a pageboy, a bubble-cut, a pixie (which was too short)...and one time my mother cut my hair (dry) with a German straight razor... I ended up looking like Friar Tuck! (and that really, really hurt!)

Yes I remember sleeping in brush rollers! What torture! Then with the beehive all done up by the hairdresser, we slept with toilet paper and a hair net to keep it all in place for a few days at least! Kodi06,
