 Bald & Beautiful for 1 Night - 1983

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.

A Belle Epoque kind of look in this famous photo published in British Vogue, 1983. Harry King, who did this great hair remembers:  “We were supposed to go to India for this sitting but the visas didn’t come through,  We all shot up with antibiotics for the trip and got a swollen arm!   We did the ‘trip” in Lategan’s studio in NY.  It was Maria’s first job as a model and she was terrified. One of the most creative experiences. It won the Kodak award in UK for best editorial.”     For more on and by WorldGreat Harry King, click:
