Hair color by Tono Sanmartin inspired by the planet earth (#Planetatierra) by Spain’s king of hair sculptures, headdresses and hair to transport us from here to there with a wow. This short soft asymmetric look in colorific blues and greens was published with a full page in the January 2018 issue of Peluquerias Magazine.   You can see my very favorite Peluquerias cover with hair and the most extraordinary eyelashes ever by Tono Sanmartin if you CLICK HERE

Hooks & Eyes Hair by Roberto Perozzi - 2017

Photo: Takashi Imai

Introducing some beautiful hair inspirations by Roberto Perozzi, RPH Salon, Tokyo, Japan. He calls these gorgeous avant-garde looks “Hooks and Eyes” and we found them on two pages with more wonderful work in the December issue of Peluquerias Magazine. He has used silver clasps fastened on to the hair with hooks and eyes, used to great effect here and there on long straight hair.   The hair colors on the left are blue, gray, pink, yellow and the photo on the right is equally effective on a blonde. Perozzi has quite a background. Trained in Italy, then to Toni & Guy Advanced Academy in London, next to Trevor Sorbie, where he became the International Coordinator for the Trevor Sorbie Artist Team traveling the world educating, and since 2012 he has been in Tokyo.

Remembering John Sahag, His Magic – 2017

Full Credits on Website. Collage by helenoppenheim.com

It is 12 years since John Sahag left us to do the hair of the angels (January 2, 1952-June15, 2005.) The Lebanese-born Australian-raised Armenian became famous in Paris as the first internationally-recognized freelance hairdresser. He worked his magic on the heads of the supermodels and superstars of his era and made The Dry Cut famous in his John Sahag Workshop on Madison Avenue in NYC from 1985, still active in 2017.  This collage shows just some of his magic which made him so famous – with love. To read more about him, click HERE and to see  more of amazing work, click HERE (and HERE and HERE) – then go to HairThen, John Sahag on this website for more.  Read how-to’s, and lots of info under most photos, some like the décor album, under More on the Menu, a hoot, all informative.

New Album 4 Frida Kahlo Birthday Today – 2016

New Album 4 Frida Kahlo Birthday Today – 2016

Self Portrait Frida Kahlo, 1940

Today, july 6 is the birthday of the Mexican cult artist Frida Kahlo (1907-1954.) Her extraordinary surreal paintings and self portraits with incredible hair arrangements, that one famous eyebrow, the faint mustache can be seen in a new album with many new images, just up and archived on my website. You can also read more of her story, who she was, what she did, how she survived and conquered her painful life, her bi-sexual love life. This self portrait (1940) is the black and white version of her original painting in color. I thought the headdress and hair so interesting, I used this image for an article I did in The Montreal Gazette on January 22, 1991 to help promite Frida Kahlo: Portrait of An Artist on PBS-TV. I’ve been a fan for a long time!   To see many more images, to read more, see some photographic interpretations of Frida Kahlo, a video, click HERE
