I'm always looking for interesting ways to display my mannequins, as well as the handful of counter top and wig heads I also have. I see these neat pink, late 60's Carousel cases around occasionally, and finally finding one that wasn't too expensive, grabbed it for one of my vintage wig heads --see how snug as a bug she looks inside of it at the end of the post! But also neat is the magnificent multi-page catalog tucked within the case, featuring a groovy assortment of nicely designed items that Carousel provided back in the day, ie: wigs and a variety of their popular hair care products.
It's fascinating that all the wigs are short (well, at the bottom, some of very bee-hive-ish.) It really speaks to the time that catalog was made!
Awesome! Thank god for people who keep the booklets.
I've been coincidentally watching some wig videos on youtube lately - and some of them glue the wigs on! I had no idea. I don't know if they did that back in the 60s/70s. I know my mom didn't and she wore a wig pretty regularly.
This is a really cool display idea. Not only is it a fascinating peek into vintage wig portability, but it sorta spookily evokes Hannibal Lector's Barbie lunchbox or maybe that scene from Se7en.
Well toss off those those wigs and strap on a rubber bathing cap, we're heading to the beach -- UP NEXT! As always, thanks for the comments :)
