Last month I revealed that my grandmother was a wig design specialist for Zayre department stores in the 70's (more on that here at a later date, I'm still digging up all the photos.) Well, one other thing she did, not surprisingly, was sell Avon product. Everyone knows all about the perfume and endless beauty enhancers that Avon produced, but for me, it was their line of fun, kitschy kids stuff that made having an Avon Grandma in the 70's a truly awesome thing indeed (example: see my Miss Lollypop Powder Mitt post HERE!) Okay now, the Avon Bed of Nails Comb, aka The Guru of Good Grooming, introduced in 1978, may cause some of you to gasp by todays standards of correct Indian representation, but when I was a kid, this comb and the funny little box it came in was one of my favorite things ever. That ouch face! Those band-aids!
I'd make that same face too while trying to comb out a difficult hair knot.
