What the heck is this?

Are you old enough to remember one of these?

Portable hair dryers that came in a little case with an electric manicure set.
It had a jumbo bonnet for those juice can size rollers that we used in the 60's!

I was around 20 years old in this picture. I had been married for 2 years and just had my first baby (I know, I look like I was about 12!)

I haven't had rollers in my hair for almost 25 years. Thank goodness for blow dryers and curling irons!

  1. Oh, how funny!!! I do remember these. I even had one I would sit on the kitchen table, similar to those in a salon. Thanks for the memory!!

  2. My "bonnet" was blue and was in a blue quilted looking carrying case that closed with a zipper.

    Uh--I have rollers in my hair right now! Actually, I don't do rollers often--but it has just gotten so long that I thought I would try rollers instead of fighting it with the curling iron. I may come out with Texas big hair! There will be no pictures!

  3. I hadn't thought of those in years! I had a blue one :)
    Love the picture of you, and you do look very young..
    I never thought the air dried my nails very well. It had a tendency to sort of melt the polish LOL!
    Fun memories..

  4. You do look like you are 12 not 20!

    I remember them! I think my grandma owned a cheeper version of yours, since I remember it being like a shower cap that wouldn't stay on but as a kid it was fun to play with :)

  5. Oh, I don't know Suzy- I have a whooping headache and that contraption actually looks good to me!
