The catalogs often promoted their wigs with well known personalities. Here Alrene Dahl lends her signature to a Sears line of wigs. She was a movie star in the 1950s, who, ah hem, reportedly had an interesting personal life. Perhaps they were trying channel that with the wigs. You know, put on a wig and voila!, you can live vicariously as a movie star!
So enough with putting them on, how did these wigs work out for some of our models?
Wigs really could change the way a gal looked. For example....
So did the wigs always work out?
