Bridal Look Inspired by Vintage - 2015

Photo: Roberto LIgresti

A modern bridal look inspired by a vintage bride and some classic ’40s shapes, by Gay Dering, Beauty Kasbah.  “The hair in the back was placed into an asymmetrical pony that was then shaped into a large smooth roll,” said the hairdresser, who rolled and pinned the opposite front side to allow some loose curls to fall forward. She then added a net, and some flowers to add some extra romance.  For more wedding hair inspirations, click HERE

Here are just a few of the Fabs dressing for fun and having fun at the Easter Sunday 2017 Easter Parade on Fifth Avenue. Lots of flowers, feathers, fantastic fantasies and tons if imagination. You were all terrific. To those who did not make Helen’s Blog, it wasn’t you. If I photographed you, you were a stand-out great. Either my photograph was not suitable to be small enough for the blog, or there was too much going on in the background. If your photo is small on the blog, know that I will post larger photos of all here on my Facebook Biz Buzz page for you to share on Tuesday, maybe the evening, maybe before. You do not have to friend me to see the page, but a Like would be nice. Check it out – – https://m.facebook.com/OppOnn2 (If you want to give me your name and more info on what you were wearing and social media addresses, let me know. I can add them to Facebook Biz Buzz – make sure to i.d. which you are !)

Rave for Waves Continues – 1990s

Rave for Waves Continues – 1990s

Photo: Eric Fisher

I was doing some research going through some of many old portfolios in my Helen Oppenheim Hair Libary and found this waving beauty by Eric Fisher on a Peluquerias page in an early 1990s portfolio. I always loved it. The rave for waves continues to this day and these are amongst the best. “Back to the future, sailing forth to new horizons,” I wrote at the time.   Well, who wouldn’t love to go out on the town with waves like these today? Wonderful …

Twin Peaks Coiffure – 1991

Twin Peaks Coiffure - 1991

Photo: Courtesy Ulrich Graf

As “Twin Peaks” the weird David Lynch soap-opera murder mystery tv series returns and continues 25 years later on ShowTime starting May 21, I remembered this tongue in cheek Peaks Freaks page I did in UK’s Hair Magazine in 1991, at the height of Twin Peaks madness.   The hair concoction was by Ulrich Graf of West Germany and came complete with a valley, a hair waterfall, squishy soft waves and something similar to two donuts perched atop each peak.  “This,” I wrote, was no cherry pie do worn by Laura Palmer, the murdered homecoming queen with something-else-going on, and unlike the oddly old-fashioned ’50s glam looks seen on almost everyone else flitting through Twin Peaks.  But our waving beauty is, well, weird and wonderful – just like the quirky surreal serial.”  I ended with  “Got that, Diane!”
