“Hyperreal “Hair Color British Vogue – 2022

Posted by on Dec 31, 2022 in Helen's Blog | 0 comments

“Hyperreal “Hair Color British Vogue – 2022

Photos: Richard Burbridge

Guido Palau, who innovates for the world’s top magazines and fashion designers, thinks “hyperreal” hair color is verging.  A long way from “realness.” He thinks it feels almost computerized.   Lena Ott, who collaborated and helped create this “Head Trip” for the December issue of British Vogue, thinks there is a sci-fi anime feeling here. There is.   Take note, hair color is not going to be only natural looking, as it was, colorific hair has been on the horizon for many years now, and is about to become even more exciting. (Thanks for the heads up Fred J. DeVito!)

Homage to Vivienne Westwood - 2022

Photos Helen Oppenheim. Collage helenoppenheim.com

My Homage to Vivienne Westwood who passed away today, at age 81.  Not the best photo, I caught her as she was arriving for the Anglo Mania Exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2006. Here’s some provocative work by British fashion designer who brought us punk at the exhibition, perhaps my favorite Costume Exhibition at the Met Museum of all time.
Top to right of the designer extraordinaire is the Vivienne Westwood Room … then the Johnny Rotten designed jacket, made by Vivienne Westwood with a Union Jack mohawk by Julien d’Ys.  Bottom, late ’90s dress worn with a high red wig next to the painting “Portrait of a Noblewoman” late 18th century, similar to Good Queen Bess, Elizabeth 1 … Westwood’s “Queen” mini-crini.  For more amazement from the exhibition, CLICK HERE

Futuristic Women @ Bosideng NYFW – 2022

Runway Phot Right: Courtesy Bosideng/Liza Kroll. Backstage Photos Helen Oppenheim

Futuristic women captured at the Bosideng Spring Summer 2023 New York Fashion Week Show designed by Toray Wang and styled by Creative Consultant Carine Roitfeld, the former Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Paris, now founder and editor-in-chief of CR Fashion Book.  Many of the fashions were a shiny licorice black, some knock-out dresses had peplums, some bare midriffs. See some men’s. fashions in collage below this one.

The hair had a viking warrior vibe.   “Not glamorous but with a raw texture,” said Rodney Cutler of his braids, which worked on different hair lengths. The makeup by Romana Lai was all about the eyes with black eyeliner, thicker on some upper lids, extended outwards.   For more on this show, CLICK HERE

Dream Dress @ Badgley Mischka NYFW – SS 2023

Photosa: Helen Oppenheim

Red Carpet dream dresses at the Badgley Mischka NY Fashion Week SS 2023 show were  inspired by Morocco – the dessert, the spices, the fruits, the trees, the sea, the colors, all  burnished to a cosmopolitan polish.  The hair by the Peter Gray Team was simple, with movements, brushed back off the face, gelled on the top and at the sides.    Makeup by Mary Irwin was customized and  included warm mango shades giving subtle mouth watering looks to the eyes, all were harmonized with the glamorous fashions.    To see the whole collection, CLICK HERE

Lead Hair: Peter Gray … Hair: Jamie Hollis and The Peter Gray Hair Team using Intel-Sense Intelligent Hair Products …  Lead Makeup: Mary Irwin using Glow Oasis and La Fatale Beauty … Nails: Daria Hardeman, Sakar … Photos: Helen Oppenheim

World Cup Soccer Hair Too Ugly – 2022

Posted by on Dec 9, 2022 in Helen's Blog | 0 comments

World Cup Soccer Hair Too Ugly - 2022

Photos Helen Oppenheim With Thanks to Fox TV

I usually do collages on World Cup Soccer Hair trends, but for 2022 I have to say I think the hair is too ugly, and unflattering, with too many fades and odd shapes, often v-shaped backs.  Very few faces are able to carry the disappointing hair looks off.   All I have photographed this year so far is Neymar, Brazil’s star player.  Not that I like his now blonde hair but at least he is good looking enough to still look handsome, even with his unflattering hair.  Brazil lost today to Croatia so goodbye Brazil and Neymar.  To see my collages of past World Cup Soccer Hair,2014 and 2018,  CLICK HERE
