Note, I can  be found most days on my Facebook Biz Buzz  – from where you can Share most photos on this blog. (Comments are appreciated on my blog and under photos on my website too.)  This wide crimped flat on top hairstyle from La Coupe’s iconic 1975 “Sleeper” Collection is one of my favorites.  It was the first time the crimper was used in the modern era, a 50 year old antique crimping machine then-hairstylist Elmer Olsen found in his Grandmother’s attic. Hair History.  Really.  For more and more versions on this iconic look, click HERE
