Hair Model '65

Shelley sporting the latest hairdo trend
for Good Housekeeping magazine in 1965

Shelley was discovered by the heir to the A&P supermarket fortune Huntington Hartford (publisher of Show magazine) at a debutante ball in 1964. Shelley's mother told her to go to the ladies room and powder her nose if ever a guy was bothering her; and that night, Shelley was always "powdering her nose". But, eventually, Hartford got to talking to Shelley's parents and was able to publish photos of her in the September issue of his magazine that year. And by November, Shelley had become a Ford model and appeared on the covers of both Glamour and Seventeen magazines simultaneously. And the rest is history.
