    I adore 1930′s and 40′s films that feature salons. Hey, can we compile a
    list of those? We totally need to!

    @NeonPegasus That’s funny because I was just thinking the same thing. I saw
    it in the drama “You’re Beautiful”.

    @elenita004 Haha! It was indeed in “You’re beautiful”. It did complete her
    look since it made her look like Medusa.

    My elderly mother tried to describe those old perming machines to me but I
    could never get a clear picture in my head until now. She said they would
    start to get hot/burn & the stylist would have to blow on them.

    All that just to make your curly????? Not worth it, if your hair is going
    to fall off!

    You can still get the hot perm done, only now the wires are hooked up to a
    computer to regulate the temperature. Its becoming quite popular again –
    called a digital perm.

    My mom had her hair permed that way when she was a little girl! It was back
    in the 1930′s

    I freaked out when I saw those salons in cartoons as a kid. It looked so
    peculiar and really uncomfortable….
