Hair Dryer!

Portable hair dryer with plastic bonnet . my Mom had one of these which was blue.

"Bonnet" Hair Dryer. Used after you rolled your wet hair on bristle rollers. Used a pink plastic stick pin pushed through your hair and the roller to keep in place while your hair dryed. Sometimes we slept with them in our hair. Very hard to sleep with a head full of those.
