Elaine Caputo, at the time of Seaford, sits under a new type of hair dryer on Jan. 21, 1970, at the Granada Beauty Salon in Massapequa. The dryer brought hot air through the tubes to the rollers, and was supposed to reduce drying time by half. A retired nurse, Caputo now lives in Ridge. (Credit: Newsday / Dick Morseman)
