Ritz Wrapz - 1978/9

Photo: Lorraine Sylvestre

Very Ritz.  1978/9.  Long hair was lifted and looped to frame and flatter the face using glittering or colored fabrics, wired for control, to wrap around the hair. Ritz Wrapz came in fabrics to match fashions worn.  A photo of this lovely look by Antonio da Costa Rocha for La Coupe  made a WWD Cover,  Vogue plus many magazines and papers – a very popular idea that everyone wanted in 1978/9.  La Coupe had to keep putting this photo back in their Madison Avenue window.  For how-to’s, other versions, anecdotes, view HairThen, La Coupe, 70s on
