Bobs have never looked more romantic than here. “30s bobbed hair is making waves and is tomorrow’s nouvelle vague,” predicted Kim Lepine of La Coupe in 1988 of this romantic look inspired by a Marlene Dietrich ’30s style, still in fashion today, if you have the right cut with the right hair. Or it can be set in. The hair was controlled, with less layers less wisps, all angles curved, rounded, soft, a signature theme for Kim Lepine’s hairstyles. “Bobs,” she said ” are the most flattering, chic shape ever – which is why they keep making a comeback.” For a child-like, natural color, Daniel Galvin of London and color consultant to La Coupe in New York at the time, lightened the hair with gentle no-bleach Color LIghts, which took 4 hours but lasted 3 months.
