NEW YORK (AP) _ Michel Kazan, who introduced women to new hairstyles including the bouffant, pageboy and the French twist, and created the coiffures for the models of several fashion designers, died Saturday. He was 92.

In the mid-1960s, Kazan came up with the popular idea of attaching little curls to hairpins, allowing the simulation of widow's peaks, bangs and curl clusters at the crown of the head.

From the 1950s through the 1970s Kazan created original hairstyles for well-known couturiers like Lanvin-Castillo, Chanel and Jean Desses in Paris and James Galanos in the United States. One of his trademarks was the crisp, slicked-back, almost boyish styles used in several Galanos shows.

Among those he coifed were Greta Garbo, Lee Radziwill, Natalie Wood, Raquel Welch and Doris Duke.

A former chief stylist of the hairdressing salon of Helena Rubenstein, Kazan founded his own New York salon, which served as a training ground for young stylists who later went on to their own international recognition.
