Rubber Hair Rollers

Q: I'm trying desperately to find the "old fashioned" soft rubber hair rollers. I remember my mom, auntie having these in the 1950's. I recall they were in brown color, it was one piece.
 
Again soft rubber, one piece, maybe about 4inches long, had a split about halfway then a smaller rubber piece that fold over to lock the two pieces together when the hair is rolled up then the front piece had a circle that fit securely to lock the hair. (If I'm giving you a clear picture?)
 
Hopefully you can envision my description and advise where I can find these.

 
A: Believe it or not, I actually remember these rollers from my own childhood (going with my mom to the ‘Beauty Shop’ she favored in my hometown). The stylist used these tools - among others - at different times.
 
      Unfortunately, I haven’t seen these particular tools anywhere for decades, and I believe that they have fallen out of production. I did a search myself on a number of sites that offer a wide range of hair rolling tools, but have come across nothing matching these rollers.
 
      Your best hope may be to visit the online auction sites and look for vintage hairstyling tools. I have seen a number of varieties of these “vintage” rollers, but not the type we’ve discussed.
 
      Another alternative is to keep an eye out when you visit various beauty supply stores for modern variations on the vintage theme. I wish I could offer more positive suggestions, but my own searches have been fruitless in this regard.
 
      Please send me an update if you have better luck.
