HighHair 1980
Hair Half Up/Half Down
Sassooning for Evening

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

There is no teasing.  A rat or soft, lightweight wire form is molded into a
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 version:
Part hair ear to ear. Side part front hair.  Comb back hair down,
pageboy ends.  Leaving out 1″ of hair all around the hairline,
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 Twist,
secure with pins.  Now, wave and pull back the 1″ of front hair to
lay over the twists on both sides. Tuck ends in with a tail comb.

Avram, an Art Director at Vidal Sassoon, created the dress and the background
for this photo using Opalescent cellophane.
