Enough To Make Your Hair Curl: Part 1
Inside the salon Mrs Paine - one of the proprietors - cleans the shelves stacked with hair products. A clock on the wall shows it is the beginning of the working day. Mr Paine sweeps the front step and one of the hairdressers arrives for work. Mrs Paine puts a record on the turntable. The first client arrives and has her hair washed in the sink. Mr Paine answers the telephone. Displays of beauty products for sale include tights and stockings, shampoos, setting lotions. A cat sits in the salon. A stylist puts curlers in a clients hair. One of the other stylists makes tea out the back and brings it in for the client while she sits under the dryer.

Plenty of shampooing, cutting, curlers, setting and perming and of course cups of tea. Even the cat gets a grooming.
