Romantic Wisps Whisper - 1977

For pure romance, long wisps whispered on the cheek, tickled the temple, kissed the nose, caressed the neck on this lovely look, just one innovative idea from La Coupe’s 1977 Wisp Cut Collection. This one was so new-looking then, who knew it would be the beginning of wisps falling all over the place because perfect hair was what everyone wore at the time.

Fine wisps were pulled out from the hairline here and there, and precision-cut into a shape, using the natural growth patterns to romantically frame the face and neck. Elmer Olsen, who created this style, advised “for long wisps to be left out for this look,the hair has to be a good length before one can start.”  More, technical details, click here:
