TWIGGY

Twiggy remains a fashion icon with any slim young thing who sports short hair and liberal eye shadow inevitably pegged as “Twiggy-like”. Here is our selection of some iconic and some hard to find Twiggy images.

Twiggy is Lesley Lawson’s nickname. Her style was a product of designer Mr. Leonard imagination. At the age of 17 she got appointment at House of Leonard in Mayfair, when Leonard offered to pay for her pictures if she would model a new style he had in mind. He dyed her hair blonde, and gave her a crop that was even shorter than Vidal Sassoon’s daring five-point cut.

The 1966 hair appointment made by Twiggy’s agent at the House of Leonard salon was to become one of the most iconic cuts ever. Mr Leonard himself, who at the time had Vidal Sassoon and his signature five-point cut hot on his hairdressing heels, wanted to practice a new shorter, extreme crop.

Twiggy, born Lesley Hornby, became synonymous with the look of London in the 1960s. A gamine haircut she got at the age of 16 jump-started her career, and eventually the cut, along with her long eyelashes and skinny limbs, led the Daily Express, to declare her the “Face of ’66.” The rest is history.
