HighHair – Vyctoria

Romantic, dreamy HighHair which can be worn with or without a part, high
or higher.

In the press release, I wrote “A whole new generation will find height on top flattering
and exciting, as will those went to all heights and loved it so in The Sixties –
before Vidal Sassoon made hair history!”

HighHair 1980
Hair Half Up/Half Down
Sassooning for Evening

Love this.  The hair and the photo.

For romantic, dreamy nights out, Graham Wren of Vidal Sassoon, NY presented two versions of HighHair, half up and half down.

There is no teasing.  A rat or soft, lightweight wire form is molded into triangular shape 3″ at the highest point, and pinned inside the hair to give that height.  Rats can be bought from five and dime stores, department or beauty supply stores, or they can be made.

Here’s how to do your own versions:
Left: Part hair ear to ear. Side part front hair.  Comb back hair pageboy ends.  Leaving out 1″ of hair all around the wave rest for a cloud-like effect by reversing curling iron for each wave.
(Today, this could also be done with a crimping machine.)
Pin in form. place waved hair back and up, like a French pleat, secure with pins.  Now, wave and pull back the 1″ of front hair lay over the twists on both sides. Tuck ends in with a tail comb.

Right: Part hair ear to ear.  Side part front hair.  Pin from heavier side. Place and fold hair over form and French Twist hair back.

See Photo 18 in this album for a color version of the crimped look.

1 P-P-Puff 1981

THE P-P-PUFF – Danielle

The big new silhouette from Vidal Sassoon Salons USA in 1981 was injected with a healthy dose
of fresh…air.  Very new then, a very different and high fashion direction for Vidal Sassoon.

The look was voluminous, the effect airy, fresh, very natural, casual, with carefully cut-up hair
p-p-puffing…flicking and flirting around the silhouette, framing the face, in soft, flattering ways.
It was big. And soft. And sexy.

For more on The P-P-Puff see interesting different stories and anecdotes under most of the
following photos.

ANECDOTE: Most of the Vidal Sassoon die-hards didn’t want to go in a new direction or
cut any hair but the precision geometrics they had done since the 60s and still do to this day.
They  gave me a hard time and didn’t really get what I was doing…

Note: there is different text under each photo.

THE P-P-PUFF – Danielle

“The formality is gone,” said Graham Wren, Vidal Sassoon’s International Art Director in 1981.
The hair is freed of its solid form, and layered throughout, with all ends wisped.  Everything is
very natural, casual, soft.”  He added:  “To make puffier and fluffier, puff-dry hair upside down with
your fingers.”

THE P-P-PUFF – Danielle

Another version of Vidal Sassoon’s P-P-Puff in 1981.  With a Chinese theme.
We have taken our superb precision cutitng a step further, said Graham Wren in 1981.

“In the same way the fashion innovators are offering a variety of lengths and moods,
said Avram, Vidal Sassoon’s articulate Art Director in 1981, “we are shattering the myth
that only short haircuts can offer form, gesture and volume.  Many of our newest looks
are refreshingly long. We are going to all lengths to show that soft,voluminous hair is
the perfect balance, the perfect accessory to fashion this season.”

THE P-P-PUFF/Ragtime – Danielle

“Miracles can be worked in 20 minutes,” enthused Graham Wren, who rag-wrapped
the entire head when the hair was dry for a voluminous, soft airy effect which
would work for short as well as for long hair.

Graham used five-and-dime-store rags in this photo and one could, of course,
sleep in the soft rags overnight, but see under the next photos about the “rags” we made, glamorous enough to party in.   In the original press release, we gave a whole page of details about doing a rag set.  If anyone wants more information, let us know!
