Time to Get Our Hair Did!

Beauty salons were a bit of a mystery in the 1950s and ’60s. Women visited them more often than today – averaging two hours a week – but it was the men who ran the show.

An appointment at a hair salon for a shampoo and set was a weekly highlight for many women during the 1950s and 1960s. Once husbands headed for their offices and children made their way to school, wives and mothers left their homes to spend an hour or more in the company of their regular stylist. They emerged with tidied-up versions of the same iconic hairstyle with which they entered the salon–the bouffant.

Below are some of funny vintage photographs of women in hair salons with their beloved dogs.
