Here are just a few of the Fabs dressing for fun and having fun at the Easter Sunday 2017 Easter Parade on Fifth Avenue. Lots of flowers, feathers, fantastic fantasies and tons if imagination. You were all terrific. To those who did not make Helen’s Blog, it wasn’t you. If I photographed you, you were a stand-out great. Either my photograph was not suitable to be small enough for the blog, or there was too much going on in the background. If your photo is small on the blog, know that I will post larger photos of all here on my Facebook Biz Buzz page for you to share on Tuesday, maybe the evening, maybe before. You do not have to friend me to see the page, but a Like would be nice. Check it out – – https://m.facebook.com/OppOnn2 (If you want to give me your name and more info on what you were wearing and social media addresses, let me know. I can add them to Facebook Biz Buzz – make sure to i.d. which you are !)

New Victorian Hair Inspired By A Hat – 2017

New Victorian Hair Inspired By A Hat - 2017

Photo: Roberto Ligresti

This “New Victoria” hair got a full page in my column of the March  2017 issue of Peluquerias Magazine.  “It was inspired by the shapes of women’s fashions in the Victorian age,” said Jovan Hampton of the Susan Alon Salon in Los Angeles. “I wanted the look  to be strong but feminine.  The braided bang came across like the no-fuss brim of a hat and I piled the hair on the top as if it could have been flowers.  I wasn’t aiming for perfection; the natural movement, an undone-ness was more important.”

Hair: Jovan Hampton, Susan Alon Salon, Los Angeles, CA for Modern Artist Session … Products: Kenra Professional Platinumum Texturizing Taffy 13, Volume Spray 25 … Hot Tools CurlBar Curling Iron … Makeup: David Maderich … Fashion Styling: Rod Nova … Photo: Roberto Ligresti

WHY?

WHY?

Helen’s Blog

 

 

 

Why don’t more know how easy it is to cover up roots, regrowth, between salon visits when going grey? Many people are discovering new products with new technology that not only covers the grey but also make the hair feel as natural as their own hair.  Something that didn’t happen with the cover-up products of yesteryear, when they made the hair feel somewhat sticky or there was residue of some kind. The best so far are powders which are stroked on. Easy peasy. Not messy. Of course, hairdressers and hair colorists with smarts know to recommend these products to clients to use between salon visits because there is often an emergency, or a client can’t get an appointment at the salon when needed desperately, or it is just too expensive to go every 3 weeks when 4 weeks makes more economic sense. These cover up products can give a client that much needed extra few days or even a week, Of course, they vanish with a shampoo but what a great stop gap they can make. Haircolorists who think they are doing themselves harm don’t really care about their clients and do themselves harm in the long run when they think these products will spoil their  business.   Salon owners who are smart actually don’t fight the new technology, the trend, and sell the product at their reception areas because they know there is a need and clients will buy them on the Internet or on Amazon if they don’t sell them!   A few recommended are WOW Color Root Cover Up … RUSK Deepshine Color Touch Up … ORIBE’S Airbrush Touch-Up Spray … and there are more …
