'70s Hair Flicks Flicking by Raphael – 1971

Photo: Klaus Lucka

Know your hair history.  From the 1971 Femme Fatale Collection these flicks flicked softly and romantically, curled at the front of a bob. Hair by Raphael Santarossa, former partner of Raphael & Leonard in London, who married a Canadian and moved to Montreal, where this look was photographed. “A woman should be a woman, and I want to make her more woman, I love women and know to make them more so,” Raphael, perhaps the sexiest hairdresser ever, said at the time. Versions of these famous flicks made it internationally, it was such a flattering look, so new-looking then, easy to do, with the front left longer at the crown. And anyone could wear this look today – it has stood the test of time. To see more, CLICK HERE

 Gwyneth and Brad With the Same Hairstyle – 1997

Photo: Wenn/Sidewalk

Here’s a photo which could be a collector’s item and is part of hair history from way back when Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Pitt were a hot ticket item. The style was new at the time, but looks today, right now.  Even more fabulous, they wore the same look to the New York Premiere of Brad Pitt’s movie “The Devil’s Own” at Cinema One on Third Avenue in 1997.

Gwyneth’s hair was cut and designed by the legendary John Sahag, Brad’s by Deedra Norris of the John Sahag Workshop, who also styled both superheads for this premiere. How did Deedra get to cut Brad Pitt’s hair? You”ll have to check the album on the website featuring movie stars and premieres, with anecdotes under many photos, to find out how a dream can come true.  click here then scroll along under the photos:
