Keeping you entertained – and informed

Helen Oppenheim

Come with me on a historical journey into the hair fashion world.

The Helen Oppenheim Hair Fashion Photo Archives are a unique and inspirational resource for the media, movies, tv, theatre, anyone wanting a new hairstyle. There are  more than 4,000 photos from the ’60s to the present, many innovative firsts, many not dated, still relevant and wearable today, even from way back then. Scroll for More, More, More.

Ideas. This is what you will find on www.helenoppenheim.com, the result of my art directing, conceiving, taking and collecting photos over decades. Yes, I’m a hoarder. I specialize in hair and fashion trends, and have photographed myself backstage at NY Fashion Weeks for years. Most fun I’ve had. There are “treasures” hidden here and there and I hope you will find the time to discover them.

I am use my blog mostly to highlight interesting photos on the website, as well as whatever tickles my fancy. I am not intending to be politically correct all the time, so I may ruffle a few feathers. Be warned. But I hope to keep you entertained. And informed.

I was born in London, lived in Montreal for years, and for the last few decades in New York City. All have influenced me. I  have toiled away as a journalist and PR for some of the world’s best, and have been US Correspondent for Peluquerias Magazine of Barcelona since 1982. I’m hard to please! Too honest, perhaps. So I have lots of friends, also lots of enemies and expect to make a few more of both.

Now, I’m working on my legacy, for posterity. This is a Work in Progress. I expect it will take forever. So, stay tuned…

This is the pastel mint colored hair by Sharon Blain, the Australian Whirlwind Hair Art Educator who wowed them again at the Intercoiffure America Canada Fall Atelier for 2017. Sharon Blain likes to “sew” her hair with nylon invisible thread, This hair was meticulously sewn with the thread to secure here and there, not pins, and a macramé knotted hair cap was placed on top of the head.

Lovely Model Reading A Book @ NYFW – 2018

Photo: Helen Oppenheim

This is Geneva Taylor of Next, a lovely model reading a book instead of fiddling with a phone while getting her hair done backstage at the Badgley Mischka New York Fashion Week show for Spring 2018.   “Wolf Whistle Politics” by Dr Naomi Wolf is the book, serious stuff about the 2016 election and women in general – and women in politics.  Her makeup, not fully finished, is by Gucci Westman for Inglot, and her hair, not done, will be seen soon, along with a how-to for some inspirational hair images by Peter Gray for Cutler/Redken.  And there are some gorgeous photos of Geneva to come, with some stunning fashions, and  fabulous earrings.  Stay tuned …
