Â· Beautiful hair is one of the most important adjuncts of a woman's attractiveness. It's also one of the most easily acquired. Yet astonishingly few women know the secrets of hair care, including how much they can do for their own hair beauty, without professional assistance. Now a new book is available, which for the special price of $1 to PARADE readers, discusses simply and straightforwardly the way to attain beautiful hair. Called Hair Care, it is profusely illustrated with photos and line drawings, and written by stylist and'editor Lydia Peraza. Hair Care provides all the information and instructions you will need to care for your hair with a minimum of expense and effort, and with a maximum of return in the form of hair beauty that men will admire and women envy. As Miss Peraza points out, hair is one element of feminine attractiveness that is susceptible to quick improvement and enhancement. "Hair is the world's first miracle fiber," she writes. "It can be washed, tinted, straightened, curled, brushed, combed, teased, rolled, pinned and dried!" Of course, hair problems differ from person to person. Hair Care shows you how to get the most from your hair whether it's straight, curly or kinky, with a full account of the styling that is best for each type. From cutting to coloring, it covers the complete range of hair treatment.
