Hair Olympics Remembered – 1976

As the 2016 Olympic Games start on Friday, August 5, 2016, I remember the 1976 Olympic Games held in Montreal and La Coupe’s Hair Olympics Collection.  “I dreamed I was Mark Spitz and won my eighth gold medal,” I wrote for this photo which showed a wet-hair look. (For those who don’t know, Mark Spitz was the Michael Phelps of his era and had won seven gold medals at the Berlin Olympic Games 4 years earlier.) To see hair history and more of this famous campaign, released at the beginning of the year, in time for maximum press, which included one of the press photos published in US Vogue, check the album, click HERE
