Spring is here. And that makes it a perfect time for a fresh new look. New as in old. Old as in from 1970.
These eight shoulder, or shorter, length hair styles were designed by top stylists from leading New York salons back in the seventies. Hair Salon Kenneth, The Crimpers Salon and the Salon at Bergdorf Goodman.
These vintage hair cuts could just be that point of inspiration for reinventing yourself this coming season.
1. Above style is called the Fluffy Flip. A shoulder length pageboy cut set on electric rollers. Ends are then lightly teased with a brush.
2. La Belle Epoque is a turn-of-the-century style, an up swept medium-short cut. Curls are set on tiny rollers and pulled out with fingers.
3. Coco, the famous Chanel hairdo, so girlishly feminine with eyebrow length bangs, was revived by Katharine Hepburn in the musical comedy Coco in 1969.
4. Chanel #2 is the same medium short cut as Coco. Set with hair swept back behind the ears and ends flipped forward.
5. The Serf is a helmet bob hair cut to curve naturally into a smooth pageboy style.
6. Suzy is another version of the helmet cut, curls set and brushed into a swirly tousle once the hallmark of model Suzy Parker.
7. The Top-Knot is a Bergdorf Goodman style. A medium length cut partially knotted in a two-way ponytail for height without teasing.
8. Back Ringlets is the same cut as the top-knot, this time swept back behind the ears and pinned. Ends are covered at the nape with a curly wiglet.
