Hair Half Up/Half Down
Sassooning for Evening

Love this.  The hair and the photo.

For romantic, dreamy nights out, Graham Wren of Vidal Sassoon, NY presented two versions of HighHair, half up and half down.

There is no teasing.  A rat or soft, lightweight wire form is molded into triangular shape 3″ at the highest point, and pinned inside the hair to give that height.  Rats can be bought from five and dime stores, department or beauty supply stores, or they can be made.

Here’s how to do your own versions:
Left: Part hair ear to ear. Side part front hair.  Comb back hair pageboy ends.  Leaving out 1″ of hair all around the wave rest for a cloud-like effect by reversing curling iron for each wave.
(Today, this could also be done with a crimping machine.)
Pin in form. place waved hair back and up, like a French pleat, secure with pins.  Now, wave and pull back the 1″ of front hair lay over the twists on both sides. Tuck ends in with a tail comb.

Right: Part hair ear to ear.  Side part front hair.  Pin from heavier side. Place and fold hair over form and French Twist hair back.

See Photo 18 in this album for a color version of the crimped look.
