Waving Hair Accessories - 1974

Do you know your hair history?  Looking at all the hair on the BBC’s Downton Abbey wave love fest on PBS every Sunday, I thought these 1974 waves by La Coupe inspired by the movie “Chinatown” maybe of interest. In the days before waving with an iron, waves took a long time to dry and I had this brainwave that one could even go out on the town wearing the decorated wave clamps I had designed – made of feathers, glitter, pearls, whatever.  Decades later, I saw decorated wave clamps being sold as hair accessories!
