There's an amazing innocence to the gee-whiz futurism in this 1962 video about space-age hair fashions, from Pathé. The women in the small town of Wokingham — far from London, with its crazy ideas — go to hair salon where the stylists where big capes or silver lame pajamas. The Sputnik-inspired hairdos involve setting off fireworks next to your hair. The plummy, chummy narration is like stepping into a time machine back to a bouncier past. [via The Verge]
