Womenswear - Decades of style
Toni&Guy was founded in 1963, at a time when salons were all about ‘dressing’ hair immaculately. Pristine bouffants and ultra-groomed and set styles gave way to a less structured, tousled look; and then the shorter, geometric inspired bobs and crops so often associated with the era
The 70s saw further experimentation, with styles covering the gamut from soft, feminine waves to challenging, androgynous punk looks. As in the 60s, the tool kit focus was on rollers, and the techniques of backcombing and blow-drying remained key.curl. The curls were then brushed out and styled with label.m Resurrection Style Dust and label.m Soufflé to help create volume, texture and malleability. The second look involved brushing out the curl, flattening the hair, and tucking sections to give a ‘peekaboo’ effect around the ears. Top Bora Aksu; Arm and ear cuffs TOPSHOP.
