Remembering John Sahag - HB News

Thank you HB Sunday News for featuring this John Sahag Collage and making it first, and bigger than any other Sunday News Photo ever, on the 8th anniversary of his leaving us.   The legendary John Sahag  can be seen in action here cutting long hair to short as only he could in 1995.  A soft bob.  No hard edges.  Harmonious.  For a technical how-to go to HairThen, John Sahag Press Photos, Playful on helenoppenheim.com    Great photos by David Webber.

JOHN SAHAG FOR CYNTHIA ROWLEY – 1997

Runway inspirations from the legendary John Sahag for the Cynthia Rowley NY Fashion Week Show in 1997.  Rugged and smooth, rough and refined, strong and soft, this was the hair to go with the theme of the show.  He used old electric wires to set hair, with a new twist.  For more great Sahag runway inspirations, go to HairThen, John Sahag, Fashion Shows on helenoppenheim.com

John Sahag often gave his last client or model a glass of champagne or wine, and here’s Rachel, a John muse, enjoying hers as he concentrated to put  finishing touches to her hair.  He always really concentrated when he cut hair.  For the finished look (unpublished, the last I did for Sahag) and  a how-to, go to the last album on HairThen, John Sahag, Sahag Press Photos, Rachel Part lll on www.helenoppenheim.com/  It will be worth it!

John Sahag Creative Evening – 1995

John Sahag Creative Evening - 1995

Photo: David Webber

Beyond Frizz, a short abstract shape, two contrasting shades and textures, like all of John Sahag’s work, this was modern, edgy, young, provocative and new in 1995, created with the 21st century  in mind.

“I’m always looking for new ways to twist, wrap, create next textures and I like to wrap around different objects,” he said.  “The spirit behind this texture was to take it to a step beyond a curly frizzy look, which I have done by wrapping the hair around flexible old electric wires.”  See a how-to and more stunning photos from Sahag’s Creative Evenings on HairThen, John Sahag, More, Creative Evenings on www.helenoppenheim.com

21st Century Big Frizz, by John Sahag at a John Sahag Workshop Creative Evening –  in 1995.

John Sahag frizzed beyond frizz for “full-out texture” setting the hair with yards and yards of cut-up, flexible old electric wires – and he finished by adding the fauna off his seasonal decor here and there.  Sahag noted: “I always keep in mind what the final result will be.  For more , how to do this, another great Beyond Frizz short style, and more inspirational ideas from this extraordinary 1995 Creative Evening, go to HairThen, John Sahag, Sahag More, Creative Evening on www.helenoppenheim.com
