Hair Mail Special

Baldness beating you down? Don’t lose your head—mail-order a scalp from Max Factor, movie makeup man—and brush your troubles away!

  1. Bashful about that shining pate for years. Milton Jones gets mail kit to order hair.
  2. Following Max Factor’s instruction booklet, Milton x-marks a spot for his new hairline.
  3. Then he stretches a wire across his head to get the natural dimensions for a hairy top.
  4. Not much business for the barber, but Jones still finds hair he can clip for a sample.
  5. Milton’s mail order is put on a properly shaped hair block at Factor’s wig workshop.
  6. The wig dresser combs out the toupee to see that every hair looks like the real thing.
  7. The postman brings the toupee and Milton rushes to a mirror to try on his new hair.
  8. That handsome head of hair puts Milton in “top” shape for big business at his office.
