Coppertone Girl sign missing its hair in Miami – Sun Sentinel

Missing: the Coppertone Girl’s blond hair.

The kitschy sign on the side of a building in the 7300 block of Biscayne Boulevard in northeast Miami, lost part of its head during Hurricane Irma.

“It’s a shame,’’ said Miriam Mendieta, co-owner of Smiling Pets Animal Clinic, which is next to the sign. “Maybe it flew to the next roof. I haven’t seen it, but it’s unfortunate.”

The MiMo Biscayne Association, the nonprofit group launched in 2007 to promote and highlight the 1950s and ’60s Miami Modern architecture in the Upper Eastside, is looking for the sign’s hair.
