I was doing some research going through some of many old portfolios in my Helen Oppenheim Hair Libary and found this waving beauty by Eric Fisher on a Peluquerias page in an early 1990s portfolio.

At last! A bobbed haircut has arrived at Downtown Abbey, shown on on PBS-TV last night. Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) went to her hairdresser, top left, and did it.

We in America are still on Series 5.
