Big hair needs even bigger hats!

I love vintage adverts!  These really made me smile - I think it was the name more than anything - "non-collapso" hair pads.


The ad says that they were "manufactured from the finest unbreakable watch springs".  Self-adjusting too! Essential for the stylish woman of 1906 - these ladies don't look too impressed!


Of course big hair needs big hats - have a look at these.



Poor women - they must have had strong necks to carry all that around on their heads!


What a great name for a hat - a large flop!

Love, Liz

I love vintage ads too, and this one is particularly engaging. Indeed, those ladies aren't looking too impressed, but then again they would have had a permanent crick in the neck having to wear those hats! xxx

We always think that our own generation designs the most amazing gadgets, but these old adverts show us that there were some equally awesome (and frightening) inventions way back then. I dont think I would be rushing to buy one of these though, or the hats!
