Romantic Badgley Mischka NYFW- 2019

Photo: Helen Oppenheim

Gorgeous makeup and hair from the Badgley Mischa New York Fashion Week Spring 2019 Show held at Spring Studios. This was a beautiful, romantic Badgley Mischka 30th Anniversary Show with breathtaking jewelry and fashions. The hair theme was Alice’s Wonderland (stay tuned) but we also love this stunning Fro Chic look. The makeup, by Carly Giglio for Stila Cosmetics, focused on the eyes, which shimmered and glowed with “Suede” and”Velour plus “Shimmer and Glow Liquid Eye Shadow” topped with “Mythical” in the center of the eye to add a pop of illumination.

Isn’t She Lovely – 2019

Posted by on Jan 26, 2019 in Helen's Blog | 2 comments

This pull through crown braid by Sherri Jessee is not only very pretty, shows up big, but is also secure, each loop being secured by a tiny elastic.  The remaining hair was wrapped on a 3/4 inch Curling Wand for texture – "great for curling long hair quickly," advised the hairdresser, whose model here is Miss Virginia Teen USA 2016, Gracyn Blackmore.  This photo got a full page in the January 2019 issue of Peluquerias Magazine published in Barcelona.  Hair & Makeup: Sherri Jessee, Sherri's Salon, Bristol,VA … Photo: Nathan Mays
