Touched by colour

A hodgepodge of a few things I really like - 1920's fashion, bold colours, french ephemera and feathered creatures. Her hairdo was known as the Marcel wave - a stylish wave given to the hair by means of a heated curling iron. Named after Francois Marcel, a 19th century French hairdresser who invented the process in 1872. It revolutionized the art of hairdressing all over the world and remained in vogue for over fifty years, no doubt making a fortune for monsieur Marcel!
