The Toronto Cut - 1977

Photo: © Lorraine Sylvestre

This short ruffle-y cut, super soft, pretty, easy, was created by Jerome Pisonneault for the opening of La Coupe’s Salon in Toronto. In 1977. The back went up at the back, to fit in with the high ruffled and frilled collars so popular that season. The front fringe was cut asymmetrically, shorter over one eye, with wisps strategically cut into the hair all around the face. For more details and more Toronto Cuts, click HERE
