    No title.

    A group of women in white coats sit in chairs and listen to a teacher who stands by a poster of the human body. M/S of a group of woman standing around a girl who is having her hair combed. The female teacher is telling the girls how to cut hair. "Electric treatment is meted out to faces - (some deserve it, too.)" C/U of a woman lying with her head back as a beauty therapist gives her a face massage. The therapist seems to have some electrical device attached to her wrist. This apparently makes a circuit. C/U of the woman's wrist. C/U of someone else's hand holding another part of the device - looks like a cattle prod! The client then receives a high frequency massage with a bizarre looking contraption. A rotating wheel that is applied to the skin.

    "Double chins, furrowed foreheads - there's a beautifier for all." C/U of woman wearing bizarre rubber chin wrap. This presumably tightens the chin. Looks like modern day bondage wear. The woman turns her head to show the device to the camera. Another woman wears the chin device and has another rubber device applied to her forehead to remove her furrowed brow. "Don't take your nose for granted - have it as you will." A rubber strap on device for changing the shape of your nose is then applied to another client. Four clients of the beauty parlour are displayed for the camera. All looking highly bizarre in contraptions and devices. One of the women has a large mask which looks a bit like the mask worn by the villain in Silence of the Lambs - very scary! Camera pans to reveal another woman in a mask.

    Note: excellently weird stuff! Could be seen as kinky by some as most of the devices are black rubber and therefore suggestive of bondage.
