    Olympia, London.

    At Olympia's Health and Beauty Fair we see great shots of a woman having some metal rollers attached to her head by two lady hairdressers. The equipment is probably for perms / permanent waves but right now the 'victim' looks like a metal scarecrow!

    Another woman sits under a dryer. A man takes the dryer off her head to reveal her hair set in curls and held in place by a hair net. He starts to comb out her curls and push them into position. Pan across a group of women modelling hairstyles through the ages; a woman in the centre of the group has a modern hairdo. C/U of the modern woman's hair - a short style, swept back with soft curls at the front and sides.
