“Leisure seems to agree with this sweet little girl. The quaint little bun on the crown of here head shows the peculiar method of hairdressing.”

Bun Girl text

What a bizarre quote. I found this sentence in a children’s textbook – likely for a social studies course (man in society) dating back to the 1950’s. The quote was topped with a black and white¬†photo of a little girl from I believe China. It’s so strange that the hairstyle revered by ballerina’s “the bun” is considered peculiar at this time.
