The P-P-uff 1981

This is the short version of The P-P-Puff, voluminous, airy,
with carefully cut-up hair p-p-puffing…flicking and flirting around the silhouette,
which was injected with a healthy dose of fresh…air.  The look was very natural,
very casual, very new in 1981 and the start of a major trend very few now recognize
as coming from Vidal Sassoon.

One could go from rags to riches to get this look.  It could be set with rags or
the P-P-Puff perm, by Edward Moore, was wrapped with more than one layer and size of
roller in some areas; in others, tiny sections were weaved and permed for an airy yet
controlled quality.
