Christie – A Real Head Turner!
P.B.D.S. Client File – #0010
From the collection of Jeannine!
Let’s be frank ladies. There’s only so long you should go between beauty appointments! I’m all for being thrifty but sometimes you just gotta face the facts. You need a professional! Take Christie for example, she’d completely let herself go. Years of wearing no make-up, boxed hair color and at home haircuts had taken their toll on her good looks. She’d become the type of gal you have to look twice at on the street, because you couldn’t believe it the first time!
I don’t know what’s going on with that a huge patch of melted hair in the back. Looks like someone knocked her in the back of the head with a hot skillet! Which could be the case as she doesn’t even remember how it happened. Anyway, it all just had to come off! Christie was tired of short hair, so she selected a lovely swirl hairdo in a soft peachy-pink tone. We finished it with a bright pink hair ribbon. Took twenty years off her!
She requested and was given new lashes and of course needed eyebrow and lip color as well. We even added a highlight to her dark brown eyes to give them that extra sparkle.
The always helpful Beatrice from our gift shop, (who works on commission) brought her a tray of beautiful earrings to select from. She chose a simple pair of silver hoops.
I swear you would never believe it was the same girl! See what a date with your stylist can do girls! The investment in yourself can really pay off. Christie’s back on the street and is still turning heads, but this time for all the right reasons!Christie treated herself to our Pink Bubble’s Beauty Bath for Face & Body. She had a complete re-root which included a cut, set and style. Her lashes were re-rooted as well. Her eyebrows and lips were re-painted and highlights added to her pupils. She is wearing a lovely pair of silver hoops to address previous “at home” ear piercings. Thanks again to the ever helpful Beatrice!
Thank you Jeannine and Christie for visiting with us at The Pink Bubbles Doll Spa!

“La Liz” – Oscar Hair 1970!
P.B.D.S. Client File – #0009
Celebrity Client Series!
The Pink Bubbles Doll Spa has always had its fair share of celebrity clientage. One of the biggest and brightest of course was the legendary Elizabeth Taylor!
As I seem to recall it, we received an urgent telephone call from “La Liz’s” private secretary the morning of the 46th Academy Awards in 1970. Liz was in a tizzy! She was set to present the Best Picture statuette that evening and couldn’t do a thing with her hair! Several stylist had come and gone that morning from her hotel suite and none of them could please her. One poor fellow by the name of Mr. Felix received a flying hairbrush to the back of the head as he hurriedly exited her dressing rooms! Liz was known to have very precise aim!
In desperation, the secretary pleaded with us to send someone over immediately as per the request (demand) of her boss. Sensing the urgency of the situation I took it upon myself to personally take the call. Armed with an arsenal of hair products I arrived to find a quite distraught superstar at the very end of her diamond necklace! Jumping into action I promptly called room service and had them send up drinks!
Mr Felix had indeed left poor Liz’s hair in a mess! He deserved those (alleged) six stitches in the back of his cranium as far as we were both concerned! What an afternoon we had! The drinking, laughing, teasing and spraying resulted in an award-winning Oscar coiffure! With the addition of rooted glamour lashes, Liz was absolutely thrilled! The Grecian inspired hairdo created for her that afternoon received raves from the press and fans alike. It also created quite a buzz throughout the Hollywood hair community and was an often requested style by loyal Pink Bubble’s Spa customers for years afterward.
Gown, Edith Head.

Hair, The Pink Bubbles Doll Spa of course!Elizabeth received a complete re-root in a wonderfully dark brunette shade. She also was given rooted lashes. Jewels, gown and movie star glamour from the collection of Liz herself!
A Mod British Bird Takes Flight!
P.B.D.S. Client File – #0008
From the childhood collection of Robin!
This groovy chick, complete with British accent, recently dropped into the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa. She asked my receptionist Vera if there was an opening. Vera said she’d check, but if there wasn’t she’d probably at least be able to squeeze her in for an estimate! How rude Vera has become lately! She’s going to really have to work on her international relations.
Well, of course you know there’s always room for one more here at the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa! So she led her to my chair and again, dear Vera, who often speaks before thinking and obviously was having a bad day, offered to pray for her, which I must again admit was not the opportune moment for such an intervention. My new client asked me what she meant by that, thinking quickly, I assured her Vera was just a very religious woman and does that with everybody. “It’s her way of meeting people!” I told her. I should really think about relocating Vera from the front. Perhaps she’s better suited for The Pink Bubbles Fashion Boutique located conveniently at the rear of the spa!
My new client told me her name was Stacey and “she loved being a fashion model!”
“A fashion model?” I thought. Now I’m not saying she looked bad, but I think it’s very likely a mortician may have dropped her off for some work. I swear I saw a couple of vultures sitting on the power lines across the street. And trust me, they know!
Well, what a difference a day at the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa makes! She required many of my special services and I have to admit it, this one was a dramatic make-over!
Now, Stacey can actually get away with telling the world of her modeling adventures and everyone will be more likely to believe her! No more hanging out with the vultures Stacey, you’re now a truly beautiful British Bird!
And here she is!Robin’s childhood Stacey enjoyed a well over-due patented Pink Bubble’s Beauty Bath for Face & Body. Her hair was washed, set and re-styled. She was given a facial color wash to address the fading. She was then given a new application of lip color.
Thank you Robin and Stacey for visiting us here at the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa!
“LaRue, the “Beauty Bug” has landed!”
While flipping through the pages of her latest Seventeen magazine, Gidget saw this!
She just had to tell her B.F.F. LaRue all about the Beauty Bug!
Just a quick call on her private princess phone!
“No LaRue, does it sound like I’m kidding? It says it right here “Easily stores away or keep it out in the open and make a pet out of it!” You just gotta see it!”
“I’ll be right over!”
Hmm… how many weeks of allowance will it take to save up for it?
“That many?! LaRue, forget it!
We’re better off keeping our appointments at
The Pink Bubbles Doll Spa!”
“Oh dear God, the Stewardess is flying the plane!”
