Italian Cuts

Italian Cuts, 1953 

    The new Italian Cut became extremely popular in 1953. It easily rivaled the Poodle Cut rage of the year before for some important reasons. The Poodle “looked the same on everybody who wore it and it especially favored the blonde…” in contrast, the Italian could be “varied to suit individual faces and because of it’s Latin look, it favored Brunettes bringing them back to a position in popular beauty standards that they had lost to bleaches.” 

The Italian cut is shaggy but sculptured with deep waves on the crown. Spit curls frame the forehead and cheeks and a carefully ragged nape in an effect  described by a romantic ladies’ magazine editor as “It’s like your boyfriend has been nibbling at the back of your neck.” Like the Poodle though, the Italian cut requires constant clipping.

Pop the Top

We can’t be certain if this is a hat or her hair…


In any case, The Hair Hall of Fame recommends a headscarf if you’re going to pop the top of your ’69 Mercury Cougar.

And make certain the scarf is securely fastened, particularly if you’re travelling in a Bugatti.
