Photos on Helen's Blog – Nov 21-Jan 19, 2015

Collage by helenoppenheim.com

Here are photos on Helen’s Blog from November 21 to January 19, 2015. Some have not appeared on other social media. Good reason to always check my blog in case you miss something interesting. And because there is usually more information and inspiration on the blog than on my social media posts which I make shorter.

I note most of you don’t scroll past Page One and Page Two. For new visitors especially, you do get to miss a lot of inspiration just staying on the first two pages because most photos are from my archives, not dated, most 100% relevant today, even if from the ’70s or ’80s – and there are usually other versions on the website to inspire, often with how-to’s.?Hair history is highlighted on this blog and there’s much more on the actual website, with full credits.

Golden Globes Hair Not New Or Exciting – 2015

Golden Globes Hair  Nothing New Or Exciting – 2015

Collage by helenoppennheim.com

Hair was more groomed for the 2015 Golden Globes Awards. Nothing new, or madly exciting, boring in fact, but not as messy, except for Sienna Miller’s just-got-out-of-the-water disaster.   The movies didn’t excite me any more than the hair. Except for Benedict Cumberbatch in “The Imitation Game” and that didn’t win anything! Must admit I watched the 2nd episode of “Downton Abbey” for an hour inbetween so may have missed something. Photos here include the scene at the 72nd Golden Globes at the Beverly Hills Hilton and Tina Fey with Amy Poehler, both terrific in their last of three gigs as hosts, sob, sigh.

Big loose waves were the look for long hair and lobs. Seen here on Julianne Moore, winning Best Drama Award for “Alice Still” and Emma Stone’s red loosely waved lob with a long thin barrette at the back (not shown.) Eddie Redmayne, always classy, won best Actor Drama for ” The Theory of Everything.”

Chic chignons have returned. Elegant but most kind of boring old lady.   Better than the messy ones of late though. Kate Hudson’s white Versace dress was a stunner, worn with a chignon low on the nape by David Balbail.   ‘Gone Girl’s” Rosemary Pike, who had a baby 5 weeks ago, wore her bob straight, tucked behind one ear, with a dramatic cut-out Vera Wang dress.

Joanne Froggatt won her Award as Anna Bates in the rape victim episode of “Downton Abbey” and wore braids on top and back. Not sure about Keira Knightley’s front view, but she had a large feather-like diamond hair accessory at the back which looked interesting (not shown.) E-TV’s Kelly Osbourne’s lilac look had shaved sides and rose high on front (not shown) looked super mod and actually suited her, but not with that dress.

Jennifer Lopez looked hot and sexy from top to toe, with a lot of hair color action in her glam big hair worn with serious cleavage, another big look of the night. Jennifer Aniston’s hair, by Chris MacMillan, was dark, an unflattering boring updo.

Naomi Watt’s diamond snake necklace looked great. Harrison Ford wore an earring, Alma Clooney’s white gloves, said to be sewn together by her that morning, with a black Dior dress caused a fashion stir.

Ruth Wilson of Showtime’s “The Affair” won Best Actress for a Drama Series I loved, loved, loved, but she wins my “The Need Another Hairdresser Award” for her falling apart faux bob.

It is 75 years today, Monday, December 15, 2014 since the World Premiere of David O’ Selznick’s “Gone With The Wind” in Atlanta, on December 15, 1939 starring Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O’Hara, Clark Gable as Rhett Butler and Scarlett’s Tara.

Take a look at some stills  from the movie, the most celebrated in movie history, then check out the Vivien Leigh-inspired hair, re-created with ringlets, the snood, the corset and more, by La Coupe’s Kim Lepine in 1987 for more versions and how-to’s (click here)  and my Guest Blog for ModernSalon for more (click here)

 Glam Chic Chignon with Crystals – 2011

This “fearlessly” glamorous chic chignon, different from every angle, has a lot going on – but it all works. Inspired by Hollywood movies (Anne Baxter in “All About Eve” and Bette Davis in “Dark Victory”) Peter Gray created this look for the Fall 2011 NY Fashion Week Show by red-carpet designers, Badgley Mischka. The off-center, spiral-rolled chignon resting low on the nape has a rope twist on the opposite side, and a long strip of crystals placed over the diagonal part. For other versions, how-to’s, click here:
