Punk: Chaos to Couture, a must-see at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, opening May 9 – August 11, 2013.  Rooney Mara, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (American version) will be a co-chair at the Gala Benefit, May 6, and the red carpet high fash event will be live-streamed at 7 pm on Moda Operandi, Vogue, Samsung and Met Websites.

Photo here of Johnny Rotten taken at the Met’s Anglo-Mania exhibition in 2006, one of my favorites. I suspect he’ll will be there for the Gala and Press Events, decked out in punk tdf!  For more on the exhibition check out my earlier posts on this Blog – Chic Punk, February 15, and the very last post, Septemeber 15, 2012.

John Sahag Creative Evening – 1995

John Sahag Creative Evening - 1995

Beyond Frizz, a short abstract shape, two contrasting shades and textures, like all of John Sahag’s work, this was modern, edgy, young, provocative and new in 1995, created with the 21st century  in mind.

“I’m always looking for new ways to twist, wrap, create next textures and I like to wrap around different objects,” he said.  “The spirit behind this texture was to take it to a step beyond a curly frizzy look, which I have done by wrapping the hair around flexible old electric wires.”  See a how-to and more stunning photos from Sahag’s Creative Evenings on HairThen, John Sahag, More, Creative Evenings on www.helenoppenheim.com

21st Century Big Frizz, by John Sahag at a John Sahag Workshop Creative Evening –  in 1995.

John Sahag frizzed beyond frizz for “full-out texture” setting the hair with yards and yards of cut-up, flexible old electric wires – and he finished by adding the fauna off his seasonal decor here and there.  Sahag noted: “I always keep in mind what the final result will be.  For more , how to do this, another great Beyond Frizz short style, and more inspirational ideas from this extraordinary 1995 Creative Evening, go to HairThen, John Sahag, Sahag More, Creative Evening on www.helenoppenheim.com
