M/S of two wigs set in old fashioned styles with ringlets, these are for use in plays, the camera pans along to show a grey wig and a green one, further on there is a blonde curly one and a ginger one in a bun.

    M/S as a teenage girl walks into the frame, she picks up a hand mirror from the dressing table and dusts under it, she then looks at herself in the mirror on the wall and touches her blonde hair.
