I came across this 1940’s advertisement on Pinterest and had to share it. I have heard of odd things being used as haircut templates but this is the first time Scotch Tape has been thrown into the mix. According to the ad, “Fix fringe to forehead with “SCOTCH” Tape and cut across top of tape. Fringe cuts straight, hair trimmings stick to tape – and won’t fall in eyes.” Based on that cut, bangs falling into her eyes will not be a problem for a LONG time….
This ad has also inspired a new website series, “Odd Ads of the Past.” So stay tune for odd advertisements of the past!
