You have to suffer for beauty

Handwritten page of a diary dated August 30, 1966

and I can’t believe she takes her curlers out before she goes to bed and expects her hair to stay curly by morning. I’ve just learned to sleep with the curlers in. Even though the brush part pokes into my head. But I swear up and down that I’ll go to bed that way every night for the rest of my life. Unless I become Mrs. George Harrison and he wants to stroke my hair while we fall asleep.

  1. I have gone to a honky tonk in Dorr, MI on Saturday night where the women dance and carry on with their hair wrapped up in curlers. That way they don’t have to spend as much time on their hair when getting ready for church the next morning. Besides it’s kinda hard putting in curlers with a hangover. Maybe even painful. ;-)

  2. Oh man, that brought back painful memories.
