Personal appearance is more aided by a skilful Hair Dresser than by any other Artist.
A LITTLE CHAT.
Some Ladies met some Ladies, and a question soon arose.
On whom they could for dressing hair, full confidence repose ?
One mention'd Mr DOUBTFUL, and another Mr. C.,
And a third one said with emphasis, " there 's none like Mr. E."
"Then is it ELLIOTT, whom you mean ?" the youngest Lady said,
For if 't is he, I also think he studies well the head.
And hence it is, on only him, I make a point to call,
Whenever I'm invited to a concert or a ball,
For he displays a certain taste, which any eye can trace
In charmingly developing the beauties of the face."
" Tis he I mean," the Lady said, who mentioned Mr. E.,
" And when we meet at Madam D.'s, his talent we shall see,
For many Ladies I could name who oft assemble there,
Rely on ELLIOT'S skilful taste in setting off their hair,
And though 'tis breach of confidence, some dozens I well know
Who have obtain'd through ELLIOTT'S care, a fond and faithful Beau;
For ev'ry ringlet of the head he curls on such a plan,
As cannot fail to catch the eye of every gentleman!"
At this the Ladies had a laugh, and felt forthwith inclin'd,
To try if ELLIOTT could for them a loving Partner find,
But whether such has been the case, 'tis not for us to say,
Until we have the privilege upon some future day ;
Yet well assur'd are we that those who trust to ELLIOT'S care,
Will be delighted with his style, and fashions for the hair.
