I can’t believe that I’ve been around long enough to see hair come full circle. It’s amazing that we are now seeing hair styles that were popular in the sixties. There are of course those famous styles from the forties, fifties, seventies, and even styles from the twenties were also making appearances at the Grammy’s and the Oscars.
I started my career 40 years ago in 1971. Forty-one years ago and boy did hair go full circle. I remember in my high school days, a classmate came to school with a Sassoon haircut that she had gotten in New York City. It was so amazing and different; I loved it! It was not very popular in my small town because it was different; it was asymmetric. I didn’t get to cut a style like it until a few years later. Maybe that’s why I still like asymmetric hair to this day.
In my senior year of high school, we saw long bangs and teased tops. Oh my gosh, we’ve been seeing this hairstyle a lot in the past few years. There is always a difference when old styles come back though; they have a different flair to them. A more modern flair if you will. Like clothing today has a similar feel of yesteryear, but with new material and a more modern cut to it.
In hairdressing school, someone came from Westport to demonstrate a shag haircut to us. That was another amazing haircut, albeit, similar to the Sassoon it didn’t go very far because the original shag was so extreme. It was gorgeous and it was also called the question mark cut. What did happen with the shag were variations on the original cut: long, short, medium, teased, not teased, curled, not curled. It was adapted to all different faces, body shapes, and textures. These became accepted and sought after hairstyles. Read More »
