Luxury Unapologetic Hair To Wow - 2019

Photo: Richard Monsieurs

This is hair to make an entrance.   It is OTT (Over The Top) with the help of hair extensions.  It is “unapologetic hair” for those who want to be noticed.  Imagine the look without the sweep of hair rising up to there at the front, and it is less OTT and still beautiful.   Nominated for NAHA (The North American Hairstyling Awards) in 2019, it is by the Ulta Pro Team which includes Danielle Keasling who  said ” I love a good luxury look and this is all that!!”  Yes, it is. Wow!

Big Hair Accessorized with Fashion Savvy –  90s

I took these photos in the early ’90s, backstage during a Susanne Bartsch spectacular at the Manhattan Center. Bartsch, Queen of the Night then and now, attracted top talents to this amazing event – like Orlando Piita, Oribe, Danilo and more.   I am not sure who the gorgeous model is, who did the awesome big hair accessorized with fashion savvy but they are all great, aren’t they? I think, fashions were by Todd Oldham.

Peter Gray for Elle Magazine - 2013

Two photos from an editorial by WorldGreat Peter Gray for Elle Magazine in 2013.  Love the big hair, the shapes, the feeling for these marvelous modern looks for black and very curly hair by a hairdresser who is into hair with style and fashion, something we have to wish more editorial hairdressers would try harder to be able to do.  Not always easy when it comes to editorial hair but sometimes something wonderful happens, as here.  For more Peter Gray Editorials, click
