Swim Knot - 1977

Antonio da Costa Rocha, La Coupe’s King of  Chignons, created the Swim Knot Collection in 1977. The hair looked as good wet as dry.   He recommended making the chignon with wet hair, then letting it dry naturally.  He made a Naughty Knottie dead center at the front, and rolled the sides.  For one version, he wrapped the head with 3 strands of braided elastic going through the Knottie.  The photo
far right made Italian Vogue and that’s Antonio at work on Oksana the model bottom left.  For more Naughty Knotties, go to HairThen, La Coupe, scroll along MishMash on www.helenoppenheim.com
