This is Dancing Hair.  By the then King of Chignons, Antonio da Costa Rocha.  I produced the famous La Coupe Collection in 1986 and the talented Pascalain Gianello made this gorgeous collage in 2013, a surprise gift. The lovely Carol Dlugos, a La Coupe muse and favorite, is the model.  I said at the time, there was a return elegance and romance.  And now is the time to forget all the greasy hair, the wisps flying all over the place and make that return too!  For the how-to  archived on the website, click HERE.  To see more Dancing Hair, all inspired by Ginger Rogers dancing with  Fred Astaire  in the movie, “Top Hat” click HERE

Dancing Hair, Elegant, Romantic – 1986

Dancing hair by the great Antonio da Costa Rocha of La Coupe has never dated, although it was created, with huge success, in 1986. False hair was braided, twisted and twirled to wrap around the head for a romantic, elegant evening, giving flattering height and width to the head. Some of the braids had colors entwined. So many great photos in the album, a how-to, and the video that inspired the iconic style.  More Dancing Hair, click here:
