  1. Oh my, the 60’s hairstyles! What a fun look back that was! I sincerely hope they don’t return, once was enough! I remember so well studying the instructions for where to place the rollers, sleeping in rollers and juice cans, and all the teasing. This was really a fun article! Not sure anyone wants to work that hard on their hair anymore!

  2. Yep…I used juice and coffee cans attempting to straighten my hair! I wanted to look like the girls that hung out with The Beatles!

  3. I fully embraced the 1970s hair trend of completely unstyled long hair, parted down the middle, with little pieces pulled from the front to the back. I also wore those head scarves that were just little triangles, with thin straps, tied under the hair in the back. Eventually I went to the shag. My mom and grandmothers, and other adults, really wore those bouffant or “flip” hairstyles, and hairpieces were much in evidence. What a fun trip down memory lane. I guess forty years from now, people will look at our beach waves and pajamas, complete with slippers, worn to run errands and say, fun times …

  4. Pam – You do a lot of digging to find these terrific articles….thank you for your hard work finding “stuff” which we all enjoy reading. I agree about the 60’s hair…whew! Attempting to sleep on those pesky brush rollers and waking up with red marks on our faces. My mom passed away at 90 and still slept with a small brush roller or two and toilet paper clipped on each sides and around the back so her hair would not mess up…we always teased her about that. Great memories; you must have done some real digging to find that hair article! Thanks!

  5. Regarding the article about Target … I have to say that I have been quite disappointed with my local Target store. I’m a long-time Target shopper and visit several times per month. Over the past year, they have switched to more self-check out registers (which I despise). I realize that the Covid pandemic changed the retail landscape in a lot of ways. But while the my local store seems more than adequately populated with employees, 9 times out of 10 I am forced to do self-check out. I’ve noticed this trend at the grocery store and at my local CVS. Not happy. I wonder if I’m alone in this.

  6. LOL, Elaine, I call mine Election Cactus because they always blooms around election time. I have 3 that I got at different times, and they are all blooming now.

  7. I find some of these fashion ‘experts’ silly. Unlike you, Pam, the elegance expert really had nothing to say.
    Thanks for doing all the research, though! I read the articles even when they might be so-so just to see what’s new.
