Raphael's Femme Fatale Turban Look – 1971

Here’s something different. From 1971. By the great Raphael Santarossa, who had tressed superstars and supermodels in London (as the Raphael of Raphael & Leonard) before moving to North America.

For this terrific turban look, Raphael cut and sculpted a fall in 3 steps, into 3 lengths, to look like 3 different fringes on one head. He then strategically placed the hair in the turban to waterfall down one side of the face, softening it.  Note the thin brows of the era, a fad in 1971 but so many found their brows never grew back as they were!  For more Femme Fatales, click here:
