'60s Space-Age Hair Orbits Again – 2016

TREND ALERT.  Gucci have a similar style to this in their current ad campaign. I first posted on the trend in early in 2015. Which leads me to think something similar to this very popular hair shape from the late ’60s could well return. This version was by Charles Booth, of La Coupe in 1969. We called it The Orbit and it was inspired by the 1969 US Landing on on the Moon. Face on, the space-age hair style was just a cap of hair, with a heavy round smooth fringe rising up to a soft point in the middle of the forehead. It was cut right from the crown and the hair orbited all around. The cap graduated to a long, wide “V’ on both sides. For more, an anecdote, another version, click HERE
