Trend Alert. Hair Orbits Again- 1969

Photos: Bob Fisher. Collage by helenoppenheim.com

Do you know your hair history?  ’60s hairstyle orbits in  2018.  Again. This look was very popular in the late ’60s.  Similar looks were done by many, first popularized by Vidal Sassoon, but I prefer this one by Charles Booth owner of La Coupe Salons from 1967 to early 90s and introduced as The Orbit in 1969, the year the US first  landed on the moon.  Now, Redken’s Guido has designed his version for Marc Jacobs F/W New York Fashion Week Show, colorized for the 21st century by Josh Woods, so there is another trend  alert for the look, which could catch on this time. It’s not flattering to all, but is for some, as it was here for Keitha McLean, at the time the Fashion and Beauty Editor of The Montreal Star, later  a reporter at WWD, and still  later the first Editor in Chief of Miss Chatelaine now known as Flare in Toronto.   Face on, it was just a cap of hair, with a heavy round smooth fringe rising up to a soft point in the middle of the forehead. It was cut  right from the crown and the hair orbited  all around.  The back was short and the  cap graduated to a “V” on both sides. For more details and a longer  version CLICK HERE

Wow! Found this yesterday while doing a Search. It says “49 best NY Fashion Weeks Fabs Images on Pinterest” and there is a collage I made from a crop of a Paul Morejón photo featuring Greedilous earrings and Jon Reyman waves, captured backstage at the Concept Korea New York Fashion Week Show for Fall 2017. A click on the photo goes to my NY Fashion Week Fabs Album on Pinterest. Must admit I don’t do Pinterest often enough but this will encourage me to do more!   To see the album CLICK HERE
