WHY?

Why?

Why are so many now content to look like so many with the same long hairstyle?  Booooring.  And it usually ends up in a ponytail, the same as so many.  Boooring.

Gold Lamé Rags – 1981

Gold Lamé Rags

Photo: Lorraine Sylvestre

From rags to riches in glam gold lamé rags, hand-made by Avram and the Vidal Sassoon NY staff in 1981.

They were pretty enough to wear out for a party.  We also made rags in animal, camouflage and other prints.  The idea to set hair was practical and pretty, a big success with the media at the time.  For full story and finished looks, go to Vidal Sassoon The P-P-P-Puff.
