    Background: The European Hairdressing Championship was held in Milan, Italy, Oct. 18, to decide Europe's best hairdresser for 1959-1960.

    More than a hundred wall-known hairdressers took part, representing 16 countries: Austria Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Great Britain, Italy, Luxembourg, Norway, Holland, Sweden, Spain, Hungary and Yugoslavia.

    Title went to Arno Wahle of West Germany, who gained the highest aggregate of points in four individual competitions. Although unplaced in three sections, Wahle's performance in the iron-waving section so impressed the judges that he still gained the championship.

    Following three places went to Rayko of France; Bernard Gresse, West Germany; and Roger Leloup (France), respectively. Britain, who entered a team of 14, failed to secure any honours.

    The contest was divided into four separate classes: hair waving with irons heated over a flame; a day-time style; an evening hair-do and a creation inspired by one of Puccini's operas, or the era in which the composer lived.
