London hairstylist Raymond Bessone, aka Teasie-Weasie, was a celebrity hairstylist, known for supposedly inventing the bouffant as well as creating over-the-top, architectural styles. He also, as you can see, experimented with two-tone color.

Kind of makes you think of this, right?

He also created this purple-on-top style...

Like having court jesters pull models in baskets around.
