Short Brush Cut With Tail - 1969

This is the Mary Johnston Cut by Charles Booth, owner of La Coupe (then known as Le Cartier.)    The  great summer style was a big sensation and considered very daring then, around 1969.

The supershort soft brush cut rippled up and back, ending in a delicious tiny tail curving at the neck.  It was ideal for those with coarse or slightly curly hair and a great summer style still. This story – and photo  – was given a full page in the Montreal Star, big daily newspaper at the time.
