Mr. Orskey will act as a girl

You never know what you will find up for auction on eBay.

Today, I discovered this vintage business card from The Beauty Parlor, Ladies' & Gents' Hairdressers, in the U.K. run by J. Orskey. Penciled in on the card is the following notation: "Mr. Orskey will act as a girl."


  1. We used to have a place in Omaha where the main stylist was a man in drag. One time my friend went in to get her hair done and my other friend was with her and Heather (the stylist) forced my other friend to have her eyebrows waxed. She absolutely insisted. She ended up doing it for free. I guess she thought my friend's eyebrows were atrocious. I'm wondering what she'd say about mine right now. My stylist is out taking care of a sick father, so I have the Groucho Marx thing going for me. It's bad ... real bad.

    PS: Heather sold the shop.

  2. I used to have a unibrow, but over time, I hacked it away and have been gradually thinning out what is left to look as female as possible, but leaving enough so they are still acceptable in boy mode.
