  • Description

    Possibly filmed at the Challenge Cup Competition, Chiltern Court, London.

    Introductory intertitle reads: "Lots of men grumble about the daily shave" followed by short shot of man shaving. "But, what would Adam think about Eve's problem - the eternal chase to keep up with the fashionable coiffure of the moment."

    There follows several shots of what looks like a hairdressing show or competition. Women sit side by side and have their hair washed, brushed, permed (weird looking perming devices) and dried under large helmet style hairdryers. One woman sips a cup of tea while her hair dries.

    Various hairstyles are displayed for the camera - a couple in C/U. Nice waved short cuts with kiss curls.

On 18 September 2014 Scotland goes to the polls to vote on independence. To mark this and in celebration of all things Scottish, British Pathé has created Scotland: The Heritage Collection.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.

With just days to go before Scotland makes their big decision, Pathe looks at the best of Scotland.
