Original hair cutting techniques from 1958
Step-by-step instructions for the most popular mens' haircuts of the 1950s. A high quality reprint enabling you to perform professional type haircuts at home or at your barbershop.
There is no vintage barbershop in your area? Your hair dresser doesn't understand you? Surprise him with this small booklet "How to give haircuts." Or try it yourself at home with your best friend.
"How to Give haircuts at home!" is a small treasure in haircuts of the 1950s. The 48-page booklet written in 1958 by Howard Jones, a registered U.S. barber. You'll learn how to perform genuine 1950's haircuts. First you'll be introduced to the basic techniques of hair cutting, the necessary equipment (which is also available today), the "do's and don'ts" of hair-cutting, as well as the "Three Secrets of Hair Cutting".
After that you start with the "SIX MOST POPULAR HAIRCUTS" of 1958. These are:
- THE "REGULAR BOY'S HAIRCUT" - an allrounder for young boys of 8 to 15 years
- THE "TEENAGER'S HAIRCUT" - the classic among young adults
- THE "TRIM" - the regular haircut for men of all ages, here on an example of a father
- THE "CLIPPER ALL THE WAY AROUND" - popular among older men with gray or white hair
- THE "FLATTOP BUTCH" - a heavy favorite with teens and adults since 1955. You'll also get explained the differences between a "Flattop Butch", a "Regular Butch" and a "Crew Cut"
- THE "REGULAR BUTCH" - very short haircut for boys up to 8 years.
At the end of the booklet the barber answers briefly questions around hair. Here we learn what you can do for dull hair, what's in a hair tonic (back in the fifties it was not required to list the ingredients), or what is lanolin and what it does to scalp (lanolin was then a very popular ingredient with shampoos, hair tonics and pomades).
The booklet is decorated with four beautiful original ads for hair tonics and hair dressings:
