Hair Curlers

I started about age fifty and went to the beauty salon for the very first time. I asked the beautician for a wash and set, and she asked me if I knew it meant curlers in my hair. I said yes and told her I love curlers in my hair. Then, I started to get perms every three months. I loved getting perms, then a set with curlers, then under the dryer, and then teased with bangs. I started dressing as a lad with a dress, panties, pantyhose, and high heels when I went to the beauty salon. My beautician loved my look. I also wore makeup.
