Tiaras are everywhere. On the heads of models in the Spring 2016 Yves Saint Laurent ad campaign, Bergdorf Goodman has displays of many in their 5th floor jewelry department, fashionistas have been wearing them for some time. Which brings to mind a John Sahag Wild Night Creative Evening one Wednesday in, I think, 1996. Here is the lovely Devorah, a colorist at the Workshop wearing a Tiara, and I photographed her sitting on a toilet seat. (I have the full length somewhere, but can’t find it, for now.)  Her hair, very new-looking then, was by Mayumi Honda. And we thought we were so cool. We were. And now too.

A jeweled pin delicately decorates a divine chignon with hair twisted low on the nape and tender tendrils curling softly and romantically on the cheek.

The hair was by Pegi Palagate for La Coupe’s iconic Creative Evening in 1993 when all the hair  talent created hairstyles for the holiday season with their usual touches of class – all wearable, interesting and timeless, La Coupe-style.

Photographer David Webber captured all the hair ideas so beautifully, and it is amazing to me that we could accomplish so much so well for so many. I am very proud of this look and all the hair created for this special evening. For more beautiful holiday ideas, click here:
