The Art of Foiling and Frosting Hair (film #9 in the Makeovers, Diets and Fitness section of WPA Film Library). [Category: Industrial]

Excerpt from a 60s training film for hairdressers that explains how hair is frosted and streaked. “Foiling” is a process that involves using actual strips of aluminum foil to hold the bleach on the hair––another use for foil that could have been put into Aluminum on the March. This is actually pretty interesting and the model getting her hair done just screams 60s style.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.
