Do you know your hair history?  Here’s a Femme Fatale from Raphael’s famous 1971 Collection, this one with flicks flicking on the forehead, very new at the time when flicks only flicked at the ends of long hair.  For other versions of this model’s very fine hair – and other Femme Fatales, click here

First Flicks @ Front, Femmes Fatale - 1971

Photos: Klaus Lucka

Do you know your hair history?  These three photos are from Raphael’s Femme Fatale Collection, 1971.  The all-one-length bobbed hairstyles featured flicks at the front, flattering the face.  So new, at the time, no one had done anything like them before.  Raphael said these looks were offered as “the answer to those ratty tatty growing-out layered looks” everyone had at the time.  For more Femme Fatales and more info, go to HairThen Raphael on www.helenoppenheim.com

Raphael's Femme Fatale - 1971

Femme Fatale by Raphael Santarossa.  This is one of many looks with flicks at the front that Raphael created in 1971, very new then.   Raphael, one of the great hairdressers of all time, was  very famous in London and Europe in the 60s, as the Raphael of Raphael & Leonard.  I launched his salon when he arrived in Montreal and this was one of the great photos from our opening press release by the hairdresser who loved women!    For more on Raphael, go to About, and for more Femme Fatale photos, go to the Archives – HairThen, Raphael, on www.helenoppenheim.com

Femme Fatale

“A woman should be a woman and I want to make her more woman, I love women and
know how to make them more so,” said Raphael when he opened Raphael, his Montreal
Salon in 1971.

Here is the first look of his Femme Fatale Collection which he offered as “the answer
to those ratty tatty growing-out layered looks” everyone had at the time.

Featured were bobbed hairstyles, all one length, with the front left longer from the crown
and variations of the one cut with flicks flattering the face, so new at the time  that the
photos received a ton of International publicity.

Here is the first very simple version.  Other versions follow, and note there is different
text under each photo.
