Pudding Bowl Haircuts In 1951 Detroit

A basin haircut

The following small article in the St Petersburg Times from Nov 15, 1951 made me smile.


A rumoured rise in haircut prices - from $1.25 to $1.50 has virtually cleaned Detroit stores of home-style hair clippers.

Maybe it's just a coincidence, but one store also reported a shortage of head-size butter crocks.

  1. Okay - that's too funny.
    Instead of the Mohawk, they had the Moe cut!

    1. Something like that. My wife always cuts my hair and she's threatened me with the dreaded pudding basin if I don't behave!

    1. I don't know if people really did this but looking at photos from years ago they might well have done.
