Happy Happy - 2016

Illustration: George Karkoulas. Holiday Card by helenoppenheim.com

Wishing all my Blog and Website fans Happy Happy Holidays and all the very  best, in every way possible, for 2017.  To some, thank you for being there for me.  You know who you are.   This illustration is by my friend, the very  talented hairdresser and artist, George Karkoulas (1954-1993.)  Always remembered.  “I love you, mad, George,” he  used to write with every illustration he did just for me, which he sent me every Christmas for years. He worked with me on some and did trust me to tweak those sent, so I hope he would be proud to see how I do that and a little more with my Christmas cards at the end of this album.   To see more  of his wonderful illustrations, click HERE

 Shag Hair Returns – 2016

Photo: Helen Oppenheim

Shag Alert. The Shag, the popular 70s hair look, is returning, a move away from all those long hairstyles which all look the same on almost everyone. So boring now.   The shag look is stylish, sassy, shaped , fresh and modern. Not for fine hair.  DCA Model Murrik was photographed backstage, sans makeup except for the lips, as she arrived at the Libertine New York Fashion Week Show for Spring  2017.   To see more fab fashionistas and their hair, click HERE

At the beginning of December, Art Basel takes over Miami.  “The goal is to connect the world’s premier galleries and their patrons, as well as serving as a meeting point for the International Art World.” Here are Marissa G. Boyescu’s “photos on the run” from some of the events she attended as an Artist Agent/Broker. Included, The Big Show Fair Preview – Art Basel/Miami/Beach – The VIP Opening Brunch for Pulse, First Choice Opening, The Scope Art Fair, Miami Projects Art Fair, Bass Museum Sculpture Garden, INK.
Top Left to Right : London’s flamboyant Daniel Lismore has a 3,000 piece wardrobe according to Vogue. He is an eccentric, artist, designer, performer, seen here in Hot Headgear … a hot hat … and in an artful mini … Art and Love dress tells the story.
Bottom Left to Right : A stand-out fab pink outfit … Purple Art Caftan … Charo Oquet, a local artist/curator from the Dominican Republic in blue and white with colorific necklace … Blue and white long folk dress with hat … Three white bows fasten the back, chicly showing plenty of skin … Budding Hyper Queen, Katie Rauth, a multi-disciplinary artist based in Philadelphia with half turquoise half yellow hair. She helped Erica Prince with an interactive installation called the Transformational Makeover Salon (they were doing hair and makeup in their booth) … Veronicka Koebach, a “blonde painter” – with pinks in her blonde updo.  She is standing in front of Ugo Rondinone’s blue sculpture, just purchased by the city for 7 figures – at the Bass Museum Sculpture Garden …  Joshua Levine, a Miami artist, has had this leopard hair for about twenty years –  ©1972, his logo, is tattooed on his neck at the back.
