Kim's Kiss Curls - 1975

Photo: Marc Daniels

Kiss curls can make almost any classic hairstyle more stylish and flirty.  Anyone can make kiss curls themselves, according to Kim Leplne, but she admitted the unforgivable makes for a better kiss curl -cutting a few tiny hairs!   “They really look chic-er shorter and it is important to remember less is best,” advised Kim, who suggested bringing a few hairs forward on the forehead, on the cheek,
wherever. Photo left was published in UK Vogue, March 1975. More Kiss curls and how to do them on HairThen, La Coupe, 70s, MishMash.

    One of my first photo shoots! It was a great experience, I was honored to be chosen for La Coupe’s window poster’s!:-) Kind of Spanish looking! Kim & Helen were a great team! Thank you.

      That photo in the window on the corner of Peel and Sherbrooke was so huge. And impressive. Can’t remember, maybe you were in 2 or 3 windows too. Whatever, you looked great and, yes, kind of Spanish looking.
