These images are from the Soft Cubism Collection.  The hair was designed by Graham Wren, Vidal Sassoon, NY in 1979.  The softened versatile bi-level asymmetric fringes are shown here with the hair pulled back and  the look was created from a bob, with no hard edges, soft.

Hair trends can be influenced by many things and art influenced this Soft Cubism collection.  The circle, the square and the triangle were all featured.  But softened.  There were no hard edges, all corners and points were – rounded.  Soft.  For more versions and info, go to HairThen, Vidal Sassoon on
