  • Description

    Full titles read: '"There's Hair!" - Girls who refused to follow fashion's dictates, enter long-hair [sic] competition.'

    New York, United States of America.

    M/S of a line of girls with long, crinkly hair walking briskly past the judges (two men and two women sitting on a settee) of this long hair contest; some girls have very long hair, past waist level. M/S of the girls bending forward so that their hair falls down from the back of their heads, over their faces. Same shot from a slightly different angle - the girls all suddenly throw their heads up and back and giggle as they flick their hair about. They then turn around and toss their lengthy manes, giving us a back view of their locks. (Some look like Cousin It from the Adams Family.)

    A woman with short, cropped hair (could be one of the judges?) fondles the long blonde locks of one of the contestants, then turns around so the blonde can touch her short hair - oo-er!

    Note: this was transferred from neg; print version was also transferred, which is slightly darker - see separate record.
