Peluquerias Cover Blue Wig – Early 80s

Peluquerias Cover Blue Wig - Early 80s

Photo: Deborah Samuel

Peluquerias cover early 80s with hair by Gabriel Saba, Color by Susie Wong, both of Suga Salon, NYC.  Suga closed, but Gabriel has been with the John Sahag Workshop  for years.  The fashion blue wig was way before its time, also the straight hair.  This look has stood the test of time.  Anecdote.  I had asked Peluquerias about facial requirements for a  cover about this time. One of the things they said was something like the eyes should be lively, with  expression – and the very next month they put this photo on the cover – with no eyes  showing at all!  For more Peluquerias covers, from 1980, CLICK HERE

Bald & Beautiful for 1 Night – 1983

 Bald & Beautiful for 1 Night - 1983

Photo: Peter Brandt

This “Viking Queen” was made bald and beautiful for one night created by the amazing Jerry Mylnchuck, who at the time, 1983, was obsessed with making beautiful girls bald. through makeup.   And he did it so well, taking some 15 hours to create this dramatic look to which he added a magnificent metallic headpiece sculpture designed by Andrew Hartfield. He used some of the model’s own hair on top of the head. The Viking Age was from about 790 to 1066  in European history  and came from Scandinavia, mostly Norway – their headdresses inspired Jerry Mylnchuck for this modern bald version.

24" Hair Extensions @ Linder NYFW - 2018

Photo: Paul Morejón

For the Linder New York Fashion Week Show for Spring 2018, Peter Gray  worked with 24″-26″ long hair extensions blown dry for a shiny, smooth, straight mid-parted hair look on all the girls. When you see a celeb with long long hair, it is nearly always hair extensions, not their own hair. Some celebs who wear long extensions are Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, Ariana Grande, Kim Kardashian, Selena Gomez to name a few.   These HairDreams extensions are clipped in, with a fashion finish, but extensions can also be more permanent and sewn or bonded in.  The make up here featured black lips, by Dick Page.

 Linder's Great Graphic Fashions NYFW – 2018

Photos: Paul Morejón

The fashions at the Linder New York Fashion Week Show for Spring 2018 were designed by Sam Linder and Kirk Millar, who showed women’s fashions for the first time.  Some of the fashions were odd, grungy, aggressive, many with textile manipulations, screened motifs, great graphics, midriffs showing, some with chains at the bare waist or high on the neck -all this and more adding up to wearable fashions with difference. 24″ hair extensions were by Peter Gray, on all models, worn shiny, smooth, straight. Dick Page’s faces featured black lips.
