Spoolies

Women are always trying new ways to set or style their hair. How many remember Spoolies? If you do, you may hate to admit it! The small flexible pin curl type rollers were a brief fad, but quite the rage when they hit the market. I remember not only Spoolies, but Mom using rags, thin strips of material to curl my hair, along with Bobby Pins for pin curls.


Hair rollers have come in many different varieties over the years, including electric rollers for fast styling. Those of us who were teenagers in the 1960’s, when long straight hair was popular even tried rolling our hair on small tomato paste cans! Why do we go to all that fuss? “Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him? But if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her; for her hair is given to her for a covering (1 Corinthians 11:14-15 NKJ).” Our “glory” deserves special attention. Maybe the next hair styling devices will be marketed as “Glory's’!”

I have to add a tad bit here too...remember the old style clothes pins that pushed down over the line? Mom used them to roll our hair into curls, then tied the curls off with rags, and removed the clothes pins. After a while, those clothes pins got worn and really pulled the hair! Maybe that's why I am not one to enjoy fussing with my hair! Thanks for the memories, Pam.

I remember my mom rolling my hair in those bristly curlers the night before special events. They were horrific to sleep in (I had no choice), but a system was developed. Taking much time with my hair grew distasteful through those nights. Caring for my hair as the "glory covering" for my head is not something I've considered, however you've given me something to think about.
