Kiss Curls - 1975

Photos: Marc Daniels

One kiss curl to one side of a mid-parted chignon, the other on the cheek or two on one side of the forehead, here with a side-braided chignon. What a good idea for a NY Fashion Week show.  Something simple and better than a chignon with a bare forehead, as seen over and over. The photo on the right made UK Vogue, March 1975.

Do you know your hair history? This photo features the first crimped hair of the modern era, literally created with a 50 year old crimping machine from the 20s – in 1975. It is a photo I love, from the iconic La Coupe Sleeper Collection. For more of this wider than wide look, and more crimped styles, click:
