These don’t seem to have changed much over the years, except that they are now not heated in the fire or over a flame in a special box.
I had some but mostly used them to straighten my hair. My daughter had almost everything, curling tongues, heated rollers, crimping tongues, you name it! I have had my hair short now for many years so have no need for them (although they may have come in handy last year when hairdressers were closed!
