When actress Tippi Hedren visited a Vietnamese refugee camp in California 40 years ago, the Hollywood star's long, polished fingernails dazzled the women there.
Hedren flew in her personal manicurist to teach a group of 20 refugees the art of manicures.
Aside from flying in her personal manicurist, Hedren recruited a local beauty school to help teach the women.
When they graduated, Hedren helped get them jobs all over Southern California.
The museum includes Hollywood memorabilia, a few photos of the women at Camp Hope and awards she's won from the nail care industry.
In the 1970s, manicures and pedicures cost around $50 - fine for Hollywood starlets but out of reach for most American women.
And many are direct descendants of that first class of women inspired by the nails of a Hitchcock blonde. »
