Some folks only request information, which is fair enough by me. Maybe they don't want discussion, chat, banter etc. Different people want different things from a forum, and that's fine.  If

Lets take the OLD WOMAN out of the blue rinse brigade maybe "Mature Lady   " is better 

The Blue rinse was a water base colour and you could use it on ladies who had white hair. but a lot of young girls who had their bleached would have it on there fringes there was also a pink rinse you could have, if you look at a lot of young girls now quite a few have blue, green, red, pink, violet, and more colours in there hair.  I don't think that we can class the blue rinse as things we don't see any more.

 What we don't see anymore are Finger waves, french rolls, cottage loaf, to name but a few hair styles, Nestle Permanent-waving machine you know  the one chandelier type. This was fixed to the ceiling. Bottles of light ale in salons stock cupboard, (we use to set hair with IPA) lacquer not seen any more its all hair spray. Cubicles which we worked in and the large black/white telephone on the reception desk, I could go on and on but don't want to be a bore,

I'm only going back to the 1970s, but thinking about it my grandma and all other grandma's seemed to me to be of the Hilda Ogden type, big pointy glasses, silly lumpy hats and big broaches on their blue raincoats. But the thing is they were only 60 yrs old or so. I was only a youngster but to me they were old.
