Gone to their heads

Describe a gathering of women as "colourful" and the odds are that the reader will immediately connect the word with dress. Today, however, the term also applies to hair - especially since a woman can change her hair colouring to suit her dress. This was demonstrated at the Majestic Theatre recently during a hair-styling contest. Every hue of the rainbow was evident as 50 Nelson women paraded a variety of hair colour and styles.

Winner of the hair-styling was Ann Densem (right back in above pic), of the Stoke Beauty Salon. Anne's creation is displayed by Marlene Thorn, at top right. The other picture at top left shows contestants working on the models on stage.


Competing hairdressers were, front: Sandra Hitchcock (Brophys), Zaida Cameron (Rose Marie), Amuri Abrahams (Nelson), Beryl Mytton (Nelson). Back: Marion McKay (Nelson), Sue Crisp (Brophys), Jacqueline Soutter (Nelson) and Ann Densem.


Models were Anna Leahy (Mytton) and Maureen Duke (Crisp) centre left, and Beatrice Duncan (McKay) and Edith Thompson (Hitchcock) bottom left.


Models shown on this page are Jackie Warwick (Cameron), top left, Barbara Hambrook (Soutter), above, and Myra Fowler (Abrahams), far left.
