Happy New Year with this 1975 LaCoupe one-length classic bob by Kim Lepine.   Angel Curls curled on tiny tongs, thin, like a pencil, at the ends of the bob – bottoms up!  The color was a gorgeous L’Oréal Mandarin/Mango shade, so new then it had to be flown into to the US for the New York shoot.   For more Hair History and details, CLICK HERE

Happy New Year.  Bottoms Up!   This straight, all-one-length classic bob, was angel curled on tiny tongs, thin, like a pencil, with the bottoms up, in 1975.  The color was a gorgeous Mandarin/Mango shade, so new then it had to be flown in to the US for the photo shoot from La Coupe in Montreal.
