Pathe visits the hairdressers in Wokingham, an establishment owned by Alec Pountney. Daphne Cave, stands outside the hairdressers and finally goes in. The staff are wearing glittery space age costumes. There are various shots of women with their hair dyed pink, put in curlers and having their hair rinsed in champagne. One reads 'the Great Book of Amazing Stories' on outer space adventures.
Two women have their hair finished off with a device that looks like its got a sparkler inside - it looks funny but dangerous, although they must be wearing wigs, one pink, one yellow. Another woman has her hair finished with a head-dress that looks like molecules and wires. Leonard Pountney puts a record on the radiogram. The girl with the space head-dress leaves and meets her boyfriend who is dressed as a spaceman in a silver suit and helmet.
