Confessions of a good-time blonde


Aaah 70's adverts, here's a classic. How much do you want to bet this advert was conceived by a bloke? The bombshell in the pic is gorge, I'd love that outfit and to be lounging in that glam room scene but I'll stick to "yukky brown hair" for now. 
Whilst we are on the subject, I have been pondering a change of hair style for a while, at the moment my hair is a chin length layered bob with a sweepy fringe, but I have been seriously thinking about going short for a few months now. I have had very short hair before, a cropped style in my teens and then I had the Quant style 5 point cut for a few moddish years, which I absolutely loved. I kind of think I want to go for something in-between, like the 5 point but a little lighter maybe layered so it's a bit more "swept' if you know what I mean!

What a brilliant picture! The stole, the satin, the telephone - love it all. I've never seen this one before. I used to use Born Blonde when I was a teenager. Your hair sounds great bobbed or short, if it suits you, why not? xx

That sounds like a great haircut- go for it! I'm still considering taking my hair much, much blonder- kinda Bardot-ish but I'm too scared to do it at the moment.

Thank you all for your sweet comments as always!
Vintagevixen - the chrome telephone is too cool.
Helga - I love a bit of good old fashioned sexism!
Laurakitty - the bardot sounds fabulous, I wish I could go blonde!

I need a new direction, hair-wise, too. So I empathise greatly. Sounds like a good idea to me!

Great advert...I love the honesty of ads from that era. No obtuseness, just simple.
