Saturday Night Genealogy Fun: Female Relatives With Beautiful Hair

Yes, I know it's Tuesday.  I was out of town Saturday and did not have access to my primary computer, where most of my scanned family photos are stored, so I had to wait until I returned home to see if I had any relevant photos for the Saturday Night Genealogy Fun challenge.

Your mission, should you decide to accept it (cue the Mission:  Impossible! music) is:

(1) This week we're going to look for female relatives with beautiful hair in our photograph collections.

(2) Find one or more photographs of females in your ancestral families that have beautiful hair, by your own subjective beauty standards.  

(3) Show the photograph(s) if you have it/them and tell us a bit about the person shown.  If you don't have a digital photograph, please describe the female and her beautiful hair the best you can.

(4) Write your own blog post, a comment to this blog post, or a comment on Facebook or Google+.

After having looked through my collection of digitized photographs, I seem to have come up a bit short in the "beautiful hair" department, but I did find a photograph of my cousin's wife with what was very stylish hair at the time.

This is Blanche Mildred Sax (1924–1989).  She was born in Chicago, Illinois to Joseph Sax and Florence Miller.  She married my 1st cousin 2x removed Samuel Michael Brainin.  She was a wonderful person, whom I am very happy I was able to meet.  She gave me a small pair of hand cymbals that I still cherish.
