  • Description

    London.

    Various shots show Mayfair hairstylist Henry da Costa creating new hairdos for teenage girls; he coils Evelyn Lees' long hair around the back of her head and fastens it with a brooch, then carefully tweaks her fringe into place - very gamine! The short hair of Barbara Prime has gold lacquer painted on in streaks; Jackie Syms has a green chiffon scarf pad pinned under her pony tail and a necklace placed on the top of her head.

    Two identical twins show a before and after style; the first has a waved hairstyle; the second has the same, with a false chignon attached to the back.

    Note: on file are notes on the footage shot. Henry's salon was at 109 New Bond Street.
