Here’s another selection of pictures from a vintage “Look” magazine. This one is from April 18, 1967. According to the article, the summer’s forecast is for “short, cool, and lots of curls.” The models’ heads are styled with curls either through the use of a wig or a great hair cut and permanent. But what makes the photographs amusing is the use of classic sculptured Greek heads that have curls, too!
Hair stylist Ara Gallant of Manhattan created this slip-on “cluster of curls” for Tovar-Tresses. Made of real hair this wig sold in 1967 for $225.
This head of curls was called the “beach wig” and was used over a wet head. It was created by Henri Bendel‘s hair wizard Paul Mitchell. The wig was light weight and could be rolled up and carried in a pocket. The model wears a classic white T-shirt by Florence Walsh.
Instead of a wig of curls, the master of the geometric cut, Vidal Sassoon, created this hair style. For a permanent, shampooing and drying the hair the cost then was- $38!
