“Glamour Bonnet” Provides Vacuum to Aid Complexion, 1941

Not a deep-sea diver, but a beauty-parlor patron in the vacuum helmet in 1941.

Some persons believe a mud pack is the answer to the search for a beautiful complexion, others think massage will do the trick, but Mrs. D. M. Ackerman, of Hollywood, California, has decided that reduced air pressure is a good treatment.

So, she has devised a “glamour bonnet” like a diver’s helmet with which the atmospheric pressure around the beauty seeker’s head can be lowered. The effect is similar to what a person feels who climbs a high mountain or flies high in a plane, and Mrs. Ackerman claims that the reduced pressure stimulates blood circulation and thus aids the complexion to attain its natural beauty. A window has been installed so the customers can read during treatments.

  1. What's with all the objectification of women galleries of late, are you deliberately trying to offend people?
