This iconic photo from La Coupe’s famous Art Deco Collection of 1974 featured an Eton Crop, inspired by the ’20s version, and a flirty kiss curl. Note to hairstylists, sometimes just a little kiss curl can make all the difference to a simple front view.  For real life, a kiss curl can be very subtle but for a photo, fashion runway or the red carpet, it needs to be more like the one in this photo, to show.  This look had  a high, off-centre part, and a soft feather-y kiss curl, enough but not too much and it was not stuck down with sugar as they used to do.  The kiss curl can, of course, work with short or long pulled-back hair.
