Hairdressing “Meter” Eliminates Guesswork
A device recently invented by a well-known New York beauty expert is said to enable hairdressers to eliminate guesswork from the problem of designing the most flattering hair style for their women customers. As pictured at the left, the hairdresser places his customer in front of the unit, which consists of a series of evenly spaced, concentric wire circles. He then notes where the facial contours extend beyond a given circle, and arranges the coiffure to form a perfectly balanced circular effect for the entire outline of the head and face.
