Raphael's Femme Fatale - 1971

Femme Fatale by Raphael Santarossa.  This is one of many looks with flicks at the front that Raphael created in 1971, very new then.   Raphael, one of the great hairdressers of all time, was  very famous in London and Europe in the 60s, as the Raphael of Raphael & Leonard.  I launched his salon when he arrived in Montreal and this was one of the great photos from our opening press release by the hairdresser who loved women!    For more on Raphael, go to About, and for more Femme Fatale photos, go to the Archives – HairThen, Raphael, on www.helenoppenheim.com

Femme Fatale

“A woman should be a woman and I want to make her more woman, I love women and
know how to make them more so,” said Raphael when he opened Raphael, his Montreal
Salon in 1971.

Here is the first look of his Femme Fatale Collection which he offered as “the answer
to those ratty tatty growing-out layered looks” everyone had at the time.

Featured were bobbed hairstyles, all one length, with the front left longer from the crown
and variations of the one cut with flicks flattering the face, so new at the time  that the
photos received a ton of International publicity.

Here is the first very simple version.  Other versions follow, and note there is different
text under each photo.

Femme Fatale

Here is another and perhaps the most interesting version of Raphael’s Femme Fatale Collection.
Flicks flick at the front.

Raphael said at the time that variation on the Femme Fatale cut could
go on and on.   Wear it covering (or half-covering) the forehead, wear it classically straight,
with side part or middle part, maybe one side flicked, somewhere. Wear it this way,
that way, maybe that way, or that…  See some variations in the next photos.

Anecdote: Hard to believe, but this lovely model had extremely fine hair and the
brilliant Raphael somehow managed to make it look like thick hair.

Femme Fatale

This is the most wearable and most popular of Raphael’s Femme Fatale Flick looks
with the hair half-covering the forehead, framing the eyes, the ends softly, slightly
flicked – “nothing heavy or hard-to-wear,” said Raphael.

Theees look requires an impeccable, perfect cut,” Raphael insisted “far more perfect
than was necessary for curly or layered looks.”

Femme Fatale

This slightly longer very simple version of the Femme Fatala fetures an interesting but
subtle hair color idea with ends shaded slightly darker.
