Do you know what this is?
If you do, you belong in Garden Park.
Everybody had one back in the day.
I’ll tell you the secret of its popularity.
Back, at the dawn of style, the Flip made its debut.
There were many versions, but Mary’s was the ultimate goal.

After your hair was put up, you had to sleep like this on Friday night,
Sport this look in town on Saturday,
And spend a toasty hour under your personal hairdryer!
Just pop it on, and you’re ready to go!
A few more hair style secrets:
Use orange juice cans for rollers.
Iron your hair on the ironing board for a perfectly straight swing.
Scotch tape your pin curls backwards for a side flip.
(Your could even wear your scotch taped curls to school, for an edgier look.)
But the queen of hairdos was

If any of these photos bumped into a memory, you belong in Garden Park.
