• Short Summary

    Hairstyles influenced by historic hairdos are created by Monsieur Jules.

  • Description

    Titles read: "HAIR RAISING!"

    Location of events unknown - probably London.

    Various shots of hairdresser Monsieur Jules creating a hairdo on a blonde girl, influenced by the hairstyles of the Chinese Ming Dynasty. C/U of a beautiful Chinese girl with her hair taken up at the sides and fastened on top of her head with iris flowers. The blonde's finished style is similar, but her hair is up at the back too. The two women pose side by side and seem to be sizing each other up!

    An updated version of the 'Joan of Arc' pageboy bob is seen, next to the original. The 1700s versions of a style called 'La Frigate' are seen alongside a modern style with soft curls held in place by small flowers. Very pretty.
