These Festive 42-Inch Hairdos for Christmas Decorated With Tinsel and Ornaments, 1961

Two young women display their holiday hairdos, each with 42-inch hair decorated with tinsel and ornaments. Claudette Ackrich’s hair is decorated with tinsel, and Giselle Roc’s hairstyle consists of Christmas tree balls.

These hairdos are done with real hair. Each of the girls has 42 inch hair that has never been cut. Hair is wound around florist’s “topiary tree” (this is a straw pyramid used to train vines into ornamental shapes) not chicken wire, which is normally used in such concoctions. Hair must be thick and heavy in order to lend itself to winding around the wicker canes.
