This is the Deco Cut, with a ’20s influence, created in 1974 by Charles Booth, La Coupe Salons. The short cut, all angles, and very complicated was part of the Art Deco Collection which put La Coupe on the map worldwide. “This is The Great Step Forward,” Charles Booth said at the time, “so many angles but it all fit in, going against everything we’ve done before, very accentuated. If you cut a wave into the hairline,” he continued, “it stays.”

La Coupe backed black, jet black, the hair color for the Deco Cuts – great with pale faces. Deco Cat’s Eyes Makeup, by Electa, featured cat’s eyebrows, a brow not seen for a few decades at the time.    For full details on the hair, hair color, the makeup, click here
