Including shampoo, hair dye, wigs and more!
“Brushing puts a gleam in your hair.” These ads for Du Pont hair brushes date from 1946-48 and featured lovely ladies brushing their luxurious locks.
“Sisters are different from brothers.”These ads for men’s hair styling product “Duke” and their women’s range “Raveen” are from 1964 to 1972. Both made by Supreme Beauty Products, they mainly advertised separately but there were a few mixed line ads too.
“”Once her hair was her despair, now she’s a Lustre-Creme Dream Girl.”” These Lustre Creme shampoo ads from 1948 all had a very similar theme: shiny hair does a husband find.
“Made just for girls!” These yummy pink ads for Lustre Creme shampoo date from 1967-68. They feature some very sixties geometrics!
“A lovelier brush for lovelier hair!” These ads for Pro-phy-lac-tic “Jewelite” hair brushes date from 1945-49.
“No more poodle-tight perms, monstrous commitments or not-so-funny between-perm droops.” I love this set of adverts for Toni’s “Epic-Waves” try-on perms from 1989, featuring porcelain clown, poodle and Bride of Frankenstein faces, and big 80’s hair!
