Harry King, WorldGreat - 1976

Harry King described this 1976 hair cut on Yolande Gilot for GQ Magazine as “a revolutionary haircut.”

“I cut Yolande’s hair off, many different lengths.  No one had ever cut hair this way before,” he said. “It wasn’t cut in the conventional way, apart from taking sections from the back and working forward.  Within my sections, I cut into the hair, not the ends, cutting in all directions and lengths.” This short, flattering haircut is very  modern and wearable  today, even though it was done in the seventies.

This stunning short curly fuss-free hair by Harry King was created in 1976 but it is as modern today as it was way back then. At the time “it was a revolutionary haircut because it was cut in many different lengths and no one had ever cut hair this way before,” said Harry King, the king of big sexy hair with over 100 Cosmopolitan covers to his credit.   For those into Hair History, it is worth reading the whole story and seeing more of the WorldGreat’s hair – CLICK HERE

Big Beautiful Bow - 1982

Repost.  Because  this is so lovely.  Wrap it up in a big beautiful bow as WorldGreat Harry King did with the big teased-to-there hair on lovely model Nancy Donahue for British Vogue, in 1982.

Vogue said the glorious smock  was gold, the velvet leggings jet banded mink.  Really, all this works today, the hair and the fashions.   Just as the friendship between the hairdresser and the model does; they are the best of friends all these years after this great photo was taken (in Loulou de la Falaise’s Paris apartment.)  For 37  Harry King photos archived in an album, his big and his innovative hair from the ’70s and ’80s, CLICK HERE

Here I am at Nancy and Harry’s Fashion Reunion Party at Parlor Spring Street on August 12, 2015. As seen through the beautiful eye and lens of the amazing photographer Paul Morejón. Top Model Nancy Donahue and Hair WorldGreat Harry King throw terrific parties every year, or twice a year, for the fab fashion crowd from the ’70s and ’80s, some from the ’60s. Guests include models, hairdressers, makeup artists, fashion stylists, fashion editors, PR’s, and plenty of photographers so cameras are flashing all the time.  The photographers can’t resist the models, who all still look wonderful.  But look how lucky I am with this photo!  To see the fun and how great everyone looks, click for more HERE
