September 21, 1964, Monday. I maybe have a job as a box girl!!!
Everyone noticed my hair being so light. Some liked it, but most wanted me to change it back. So after school we all went to Linda Klein’s parent’s beauty supply store. I’m doing my hair Champagne Toast…Silver Blond. I bet my hair is going to fall out. Came home and than had to pick up my little sister Billee from school. I was two hours late and she had to sit and wait for me. I just stayed home tonight. I’m on a diet again. Now I weigh 120 lbs, but I want to lose 5 more, because there’s a Miss Auto Contest and the winner gets a $100.00 wardrobe. I’m scared to enter it after what happened at the Miss Culver City Contest. Sandy, Dianne Block and I are supposed to work at Jack’s Ranch Market in Culver City as box boys on Saturday and Sunday, for $25.00 a week.
I loved sitting under a warm hair dryer, with conditioner or curlers in my hair. It gave me time to polish my long nails and wait for the mud pack to dry on my face. The bad part was I couldn’t talk on the phone.
This is a pretty good representation of the kind of Box Girl, Sandy, Dianne and I would make. But for $25.00 a week, just working two days, could buy us a cool outfit every week.
