An adorable and very charming little veil attached to a headband is for the romantic fashionable bride. Sherri Jessee, who creates the most beautiful bridal hair, likes to create shapes that “real” brides request so she added this veil to hair gently curled, then misted very lightly with hairspray. Who wants to wake up to stiff hair the next morning?

Futuristic butterflies by John Sahag flew brilliantly at the IBS Fuse Show in 2003. All the heads were braided, wrapped, twisted, knotted, in butterfly shapes. Meticulously engineered couture hairpieces (which took 4 hairdressers and 4 assistants 4 weeks to create) were cut-up, colored, entwined, tied with elastics and attached.  For more Sahag butterflies buzzing, click and scroll from HERE

Star Wars-Inspired Nails by Zoya – 2015

Star Wars-Inspired Nails by Zoya – 2015

Photo: © Helen Oppenheim

The nails by Zoya at the Mara Hoffman Fall 2015 New York Fashion Week show were inspired by the sunset scenes from the “Star Wars” movie, the theme for the show. The colors were Earthones, and had a ’70s vibe, like the collection.  Alicia Torello, the lead manicurist, started with Zoya Ziv, then added Brittany for the round sun. “To create shapes,” she advised, “start at the bottom with Taylor, going from light to dark. Make natural swipes diagonally down the nail with Aubrey and finish with Normani , with quick natural swipes across the bottom.” The lines can be a little messy if you want to try this yourself. Hair from the show coming soon. Stay tuned …
