Another romantic feeling from La Coupe New York in 1987, Boudoir Hair, for the boudoir and dancing the night away, worn with lingerie looks.

La Coupe introduced The New Curl and Kim Lepine, International Design Director, predicted:  “The New Direction is small heads, closer to the head, with soft “V” backs.”  Great short curly look for a growing-out gamine.  For much more and tutorials, go to HairThen, 80s Hair, Boudoir Hair.
