last five capes on ebay

Here are the last five of the different capes that I'm putting on eBay

Yellow Diane Shampoo Cape with Ties http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&pub=5575378759&campid=5338273189&customid=&icep_item=273454778302&ipn=psmain&icep_vectorid=229466&kwid=902099&mtid=824&kw=lg&toolid=11111

Btw, Carmen showed me how to tie a tie cape today, and boy do I feel dumb! You basically tie it like a shoe lace in a shoe! (I'll edit a video of how to tie at some point, in case others are as silly as me. It's already been shot.)

Yellow Vinyl Diane Shampoo Cape with Hooks http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&pub=5575378759&campid=5338273189&customid=&icep_item=273454799461&ipn=psmain&icep_vectorid=229466&kwid=902099&mtid=824&kw=lg&toolid=11111

Please ignore that "Make Offer" option on eBay. That option is mandatory for every listing, whether I want it or not. I am letting these all go in the auction format.

While I have the footage on my computer, I haven't started editing it just yet. I did pull some screen shots randomly, so what you see may or may not be in the final cut.

I hope to release this video by the end of this month.
Awhile back, I purchased a box of new, old stock of vintage salon capes, circa the 1960s and 1970s. Since many people have asked to buy my capes, I'm selling off these new ones. (I'm not ever planning on selling off my own personal collection again). Capes are just so much fun!

-- I will be updating this entry when I have listed all the capes --

While doing a YouTube Live with these capes, I had someone take a photo of me wearing them, so you can see how the cape lays, the colors, and etc. You can check out that video at https://youtu.be/HOo4Y0fRCKU

Now show you where you can find these lovely vintage capes on eBay

A couple months ago or so, I bought new, old stock labels of Hess Hair Milk Laboratories' hair products. These products were made in the 1940s or 1950s and could often be found in barber shops. I used Mod Podge and glued on the labels to a few old bottles to add to my growing vintage hair product collection. I have a lot of these labels left, so I put them on eBay. You'll get two sets of four, for a total of eight labels so you can start or grow your collection too. Only $10 and free shipping worldwide.


Thank you, Paul, for the heads up on this one! Wish You Were Here (1987). He writes, "Unabashedly hedonistic & foul mouthed Lynda (Emily Lloyd) is a restless teenager! The first five minutes of this movie shows Lynda training in a Ladies Hairdressing school. Her father owns a barbershop next door. The film is set in the 1950s."

Paul included some photos from this video.

hair salon scene in Taxi TV show

There's a hair salon scene in Taxi, episode 18, called "The Unkindest Cut." Elaine visits a posh salon for a new hairstyle and gets one.

In one of the YouTube videos, I showed up my latest treasures of perm rods and rollers that I received from Hess' grandson. One of the treasures turned out to be "pen stick" perm rods. But I had no idea how these were used and I couldn't find them existing online. So what's a gal to do? Take them to Carmen, of course!

Carmen, the genius hair stylist, played around with some of the pen stick perm rods in my hair at the salon.

She figured out how they work and we're planning on shooting the video in September. I'm currently casting a model for the video.

Now, other news! On Sunday, I teamed up with James the Stylist to shoot a video of a woman with waist long hair receiving a asymmetrical pixie haircut. OMG, she looks A.M.A.Z.I.N.G in her new shorter hairstyle! I nearly jumped in the chair after she left.

I'll have a few photos to share within the next week or two. That's when I'll start editing the video.

Also on Sunday, I finally found some time to bleach my roots. I'm supposed to sport an updo for another video and I want my hair to look great. I really wish that my husband knew how to roll or set hair. So I'm going to try it myself tomorrow. I'm not going to film it as I'd be way too embarrassed to show myself fumbling about (haha, I know, that's what my YouTube Live videos are usually for, right?). I've been so spoiled in the past having my hair always done for me. Thus, I'm going to take some "me" time and finally spend some time on myself to learn this wonderful stuff.

Once I get all these fun things done, I'll book a studio to shoot guys in my chair for a YouTube Live. I haven't forgotten; just had to put a few things, uh ahem, a lot of things on hold for awhile.

Oh, and my haircut! I haven't forgotten about that either. You have no idea how much I can't wait to cut it. You know, I've learned something over the summer, as I've been doing a lot of yard work - I'm not a long hair type of gal. For me, it gets in the way too much. Although, long hair is a lot of fun to sway across my bare shoulders or cover it in lots of foamy, bubbly shampoo lather and rock a tall fohawk in the shower.

I promised to take a few videos while I still have my long hair. Once I've accomplished them, off to the barbershop I go, with cameras in hand. :) With a bit of research, I found the name of the cut to be "rockabilly fade."
