  • Description

    Unused / unissued footage - dates and locations may be unknown / unclear.

    Cuts from newsreel story 46/85 - French Hair Styles / Parisian Hair Fashions at the second International Congress of Hair Fashion.

    Paris, France.

    Various shots of the models parading on a catwalk before an audience. They all have elaborate hairdos, and the fashions are great examples of post-war evening gowns.

    C/U of two models; one a rather exotic type with an almost 1960s hairstyle. She powders her face from a compact. Several C/Us of models with fantastic and quite futuristic hairdos. Most would not look out of place in the 60s. Some have huge coils of plaits wound round their heads, like big loafs of plaited bread!

    C/U of models off-duty (supposedly) and chatting to one another - one is smoking a cigarette (could be any woman smoking a cigarette). More elaborate hair styles with feathers and jewels adorning the hair.

    More shots of mannequins parading along the catwalk.

    Notes on file.
