It was another one of those"everyone is doing it" conversations with my parents.
My parents didn't have a clue what frosting was all about. They didn't even realize that one of my aunt's hair was frosted until I told them. My hope was this would work in my favor.
Daddy asked his sister about the procedure and if it was safe for my hair. She told him she would talk to her hair stylist about it. The verdict was back. The hair stylist told my aunt if a person's hair had even a tinge of red natural coloring in it that frosting that hair would basically turn the hair a kind of orange color. I had natural red highlights in my hair...I lost that battle. When talking to my
friends about the procedure, I learned it was a bit of an ordeal and could be painful.
Of course 1965 no Google so no way to find out any information.
I knew the hair had to be pulled through something but not what or how.
Today Google tells me a frosting kit contains
1. Metal tipping needles
2. Bleed proof inner liner
Seems my parents did KNOW BEST!! My mom never put any type of coloring or highlighting on her hair.
Eventually we both had naturally silver highlights.
