In Love with Miss Lektro Set


Good design makes me happy.

And that is why this can of 1969 Lektro Set has been sitting on my studio drafting table all summer.

If I were ever anthropomorphically transformed into, let’s say, a bottle of 1960’s Hai Karate men’s cologne, Miss Lektro Set’s pouty lips would certainly catch my eye. She looks great even under one of those big salon hair dryers that the product’s package designer craftily fashioned out of its white plastic cap.

For those interested, Lektro Set was a spray you could use to “set” hair “between shampoos” by spraying and sitting under a dryer for ten minutes.
