  • Description

    Titles read: 'The Head of the house! A "mixed-grill" in coiffures.'

    Africa / London.

    Various shots of African women and their ornate hairstyles. Commentator says they are "dusky leaders of hairdressing fashions". Most have several sections of hair coiled closely to their heads.

    We then see several fashionable London hairstyles of the day, created by Emile. The last two are "coloured and lacquered wigs", complete with artificial, plastic looking curls and flowers made from 'wig hair'.
