Beauty Parlors Aid Health, Briton Says

October 03, 1987|From Reuters

LONDON — A male scientist says he has proved medically what fashionable women have been saying for centuries--they feel better with a new hairstyle.

Women leaving a beauty parlor not only look better, but their health has measurably improved, says psychologist Tony Lysons.

When a woman has her hair washed, trimmed and dried, her morale goes up, while her heartbeat slows and her blood pressure goes down by 5%, Lysons said on Thursday, commenting on research he carried out at University College in Swansea, Wales.

He reached his conclusions by connecting electrodes to women as they sat at their beauty parlors.
