Now that Kendall Jenner wore a kiss curl on her forehead for the Met Gala in 2019, maybe more hairdressers will kiss curl to make a simple chignon that little bit more exciting … Reposted.  Kiss Curls from 1975:    Kiss curls can make almost any classic hairstyle more stylish and flirty.  Anyone can make kiss curls themselves, according to Kim Leplne, but she admitted the unforgivable makes for a better kiss curl -cutting a few tiny hairs!   “They really look chic-er shorter and it is important to remember less is best,” advised Kim, who suggested bringing a few hairs forward on the forehead, on the cheek, wherever. Photo left was published in UK Vogue, March 1975. More Kiss curls and how to do them on HairThen, La Coupe, 70s, MishMash.
