Webster defines “Individuality”
as that quality which distinguishes
one person from another. If you
were to stand on a corner before a
theatre or a church, and watch the
great numbers of people coming out,
you would be amazed at the dis
similarity of faces—so very many
faces and yet all different, one from
the other. It is “individuality”
which makes you “you” and me
Sometimes it helps actively to

every day—and it is so simply ac
complished that I wonder we didn’t
think of it before this.
For instance, take a group of high
school girls. Probably they are all
dressed in sweaters and skirts—
some wear blouses Instead of sweat

teems to be quite a uniformity about

yourself and you'll soon determine
ane of the chief reasons.
I think It lies in their hair fash

adds distinction to classic features.
However, beware of this type of
haicdress if your face is round.
Curls bunched loosely around the
face lend softness to it, and add a
prettiness that isn’t often obtained
by any other means.
If your neck Is long, try wearing
your hair in a long bob, or in a
mass of curls hanging low. You’ll
like the way this hairdress has a
tendency to shorten the line of your
throat. On the other hand, if your
neckline is short, piling your curls
on top your head will make you look
taller and take away from the short
neck, dumpy look.
Experiment with your own hair,
and you’ll soon find the style which
mnkes you “yourself."
To make your hair fashion the
delight of your life and the envy of
your associates, be sure that your
hair is kept clean. Stimulate its
natural beauty with regular stiff
brushing. If you are disappointed
•in its appearance because it seems
to be turning one color or another,
apply an accredited hair coloring
so that it will be uniformly lovely.

Madam C. J. Walker to reach
certain definite conditions of the

Mme. C. J. Walker’s Glossine,
although more than thirty-five
years on the market, is still the
leader in its field. The reason
for this is because it not only
serves as a scalp oil, but it gives
the hair that silky sheen and
natural gloss that is the delight
of every woman.
