Beauty Treatments?

Hello Ladies!
Recently I have become interested in old paper and this little booklet caught my eye at the auction. You will have a good laugh as you see some of these pictures but the phrase "You've come a long way baby." certainly rings true here!
This is a little beauty magazine from 1925 called Wilfred Waves.  It is mostly ads for all the latest beauty inventions of the time and an attempt to get shops to embrace technology in the up and coming hairdresser business.

 Now wouldn't you just love to go here for an afternoon of beauty treatments? Looks like the Emergency Room of a very old hospital or even a makeshift war hospital or worse yet the set of the original Frankenstein movie. LOL
 Now this last one is the scariest of all, can you imagine? Is it a EKG? Cat Scan? Brain Scan? No, It's your neighbor getting a permanent in 1925!!!! As I said earlier "You have come a long way baby!!!!!
I must tell you that I was inspired to write this post after reading Connie's post at Living Beautifully and she is a very brave girl to show her before picture as she begins the test of a new beauty treatment! 
God Bless You Girl and I will be sure to check back in a month. 
Blogging Away in the Northeast, yours truly Meg.
