Sunglasses are becoming very fancy. Take these designed for the New York Fashion Week AAU Spring 2017 Fashion Show with shagged hair.  They were designed by Yolanda Chiu in collaboration with Jing Qian. The Academy of Art University School of Fashion (AAU) is based in San Francisco and features designers of the future who graduated showing their work at New York Fashion Week shows, which must be a big thrill.

WHY?

WHY?

Helen’s Blog

 

 

 

Why don’t more know how easy it is to cover up roots, regrowth, between salon visits when going grey or in need of a touch up? Many people are discovering new products with new technology that not only covers the grey, or whatever, but also make the hair feel as natural as their own hair.  Something that didn’t happen with the cover-up products of yesteryear, when they made the hair feel somewhat sticky or there was residue of some kind. The best so far are powders which are stroked on. Easy peasy. Not messy. Of course, hairdressers and hair colorists with smarts know to recommend these products to clients to use between salon visits because there is often an emergency, or a client can’t get an appointment at the salon when needed desperately, or it is just too expensive to go every 3 weeks when 4 weeks makes more economic sense. These cover up products can give a client that much needed extra few days or even a week, Of course, they vanish with a shampoo but what a great stop gap they can make. Haircolorists who think they are doing themselves harm don’t really care about their clients and do themselves harm in the long run when they think these products will spoil their  business.   Salon owners who are smart actually don’t fight the new technology, the trend, and sell the product at their reception areas because they know there is a need and clients will buy them on the Internet or on Amazon if they don’t sell them!   A few recommended are WOW Color Root Cover Up … RUSK Deepshine Color Touch Up … ORIBE’S Airbrush Touch-Up Spray … and there are more …

 "Star Appeal" Cindy Crawford Vogue – 1987

This is fun fabulous ’80s hair by the legendary John Sahag from a “Star Appeal” editorial in American Vogue featuring SuperModel Cindy Crawford wearing hairpieces placed for art – under a hat! (Sahag always wanted to “score” so hats and makeup stories didn’t faze him! He just came up with amazing ideas, like this.)   This was the first of the 4 page editorial photographed by Irvin Penn for “The Color Report” with makeup by Kevyn Aucoin, other pages featured more of Cindy, Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington.

This party hair by Redken’s Guido for Dolce and Gabbana’s Milan Fashion Week Show for 2017 was very elegant with a big black bow on a headband perched on top of a casual French twist, softened just so to make it look young, feminine and chic. The hair at the show was “Dolcified” for each person, real people who walked the show – “influencers, clients, models. Full steps how to get this look on helenoppenheim.com – click HERE

“Slightly Punky” French Twist MFW- 2017

"Slightly Punky" French Twist MFW- 2017

Photo: Courtesy Redken

Love this “slightly punky” French Twist by Guido of Redken for Bottega Veneta’s Fall/Winter 2017 Milan Fashion Week Show.  The front, not shown, was a modern take on the 1940s – with a roll  – but the back of the French Twist is something else, with some pieces sticking out, just so, casual but not messy!  After making the French Twist, just “pull out a few pieces using fingers, allowing them to hang loosely for a soft, romantic feel,” advises Guido, who did the hair for most of the important fashion designer shows for Fall.  Full steps on helenoppenheim.com – click HERE
