NY Fashion Week Hair Back Views - 2000s

Photos: Helen Oppenheim … Collage: helenoppenheim.com

Back views of interesting hair photographed backstage by Helen Oppenheim at the Mercedes-Benz NY Fashion Weeks over the years. I photograph so many back views because that is where the only hair action all too often is.  I know so many only see front views in the media, so thought you’d like to see what goes on at the back by some of the best talents in the biz.  No ponytails here!

If you scroll down my blog, always a journey down memory lane, all these great styles have been featured big; also all these photos and many more plus makeup, fashions, accessories (and some tutorials with details how to re-create these looks) can be found in albums on the NY Fashion Week Menu at www.helenoppenheim.com

I am using this as my cover photo on Twitter and Google+. I am not very good at either! Don’t do them enough. Any encouragement if you Follow me on either or both would be good. Hope to see you here: https://twitter.com/HelenOppenheim Or there: https://plus.google.com/+HelenOppenheim/posts

Do you know your hair history? This photo features the first crimped hair of the modern era, literally created with a 50 year old crimping machine from the 20s – in 1975. It is a photo I love, from the iconic La Coupe Sleeper Collection. For more of this wider than wide look, and more crimped styles, click:

A very young 15 year old Brooke Shields in some of the 1980 Calvin Klein Jeans commercials,  in which she famously said: “You want to know what comes between me and my Calvins? Nothing.” The Legendary John Sahag did the hair for all 19 of  the controversial Calvin Klein commercials filmed by Richard Avedon.

ANNE V, SUPERMODEL, AT AGE 15 -  2002

Photo: © Helen Oppenheim

Anne Vyalitsyna, known as Anne V, Russian born model/actress, 10 years in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and ongoing.   At 16 she was the face in Chanel’s Chance perfume ads. And from then has worked for all the majors of everything.

When she was just 15 years old, I photographed her backstage at the J. Lindberg NY Fashion Week show, with this amazing wide hair by Edward Tricomi, Warren Tricomi Salon, NY. I remember, I wanted to photo no one else, I waited and waited, and caught her for a brief second just after her nails were done and not dry for this photo.

Hair: Edward Tricomi, Warren-Tricomi, NY … Model: Anne V … Photo: © Helen Oppenheim

(One day, I will scan years of Fashion Week Photos which I have on film, as this was.)

Reverse Cat Eye @ Nicholas K - 2014

Photo: © Helen Oppenheim

Lauren Andersen of Avon created a reverse cat eye for the Nicholas K Mercedes-Benz NY Fashion Week show for Fall 2014. She painted a bold line along the lower lashes, and extended the line to help make the reserve cat eye then added two coats of mascara and the voluminous false lashes. Lips were neutral. Loved the look – not too much but definitely interesting and newsworthy. For more from this smashing show, click here:
