Hair Curlers

These vintage Clairol hair curlers were calling out to me at a recent Value Village visit. They proved to be a really big challenge. I was really hoping to have the lid open so that you could remove the curlers but I couldn't find a vinyl strong enough that could hold it's shape on its own. In the end I had to sew the lid closed and the curlers give the lid its shape. I'm a little obsessed with power cords these days, I love adding them to all my pieces.

Funnily enough last week I picked up a 1975 copy of the Eaton's Catalogue and inside were the exact curlers!

Absolutely loving these - vintage and plush is a match made in heaven.
