marcelled hair

Miss MacIntosh's "marcelled hair" (gleaming like the sand streaked with sunset when the sandpipers wade in the glassy surf as the last light fades, in case you were wondering, p. 11): what is it?

A style, a.k.a. "the marcel wave," named after Francois Marcel, the French hairdresser who invented the process in 1872.
