PostNo "Flip" Susan

I love the pictures of Susan VW from 1959. So surprising to see her without her famous "Flip". Wonderful article about the launch of the very first Ingenue Magazine. Imagine dinner with "Kookie" Edd Byrnes. It must have been such a thrilling time for her.

Yes, I think Susan is an excellent example of the difference a hairdo can make. Here's the cover of the very first issue of Ingenue, May/June 1959:

Susan van Wyck - May/June 1959 Ingenue Magazine

Susan's signature flip became so well known that there was an article about it in Seventeen:

Susan van Wyck's iconic flip - March 1964 Seventeen Magazine

The cover and the article - along with more flips - can be found in Susan's album.
First Flip of Susan van Wyck?!

I came across this Cuticura Soap ad in my June 1960 American Girl magazine. Could I have discovered a photo of Susan van Wyck's first flip?!

It looks like her hair has grown out a bit since her photo on the cover of the May/June 1959 Ingenue magazine, and it's now long enough to flip in the back. I believe this is a milestone in "The History of the Flip"!

Here's the full ad which can be found in Susan's album and also in the Ad Campaigns Album: Other Beauty Ads: Skin Care:
