But 1 never knew what brushing could be until I talked to a little Turkish-born dancer recently and saw her give her lovely blond hnlr the works. Her name is Olla Scrova. whose ballet performance Is one thing but whose dancing hair Is another. Talking with her in her dressing room, I pried out her secret. She lold me thnt she brushes her hair dozens of times a day. At every moment that she can spare she whips the bristles through—demonstrating with the most enormous brush f ever saw—nnd before each stroke she twists the bristles to secure a tight grip on her hair nt the scalp and lugs. Then, the brush is angled for a straight run down a streamer of hntr which is stroked until you can see the polishing shine show up. Using that technique, she goes the rounds of her hair.
