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

Frida Kahlo Painting & Photo – 1941/2016

Frida Kahlo Painting & Photo - 1941/2016

Left: Frida Kahlo Self Portrait. Right: Franco De Simone. Collage by helenoppenheim.com

The photo on the right, by Franco De Simone, is a brilliant photographic interpretation of Frida Kahlo’s Self Portrait With Braid, a 1941 painting.  “I photograph what I can not paint and I paint what I can not photograph,”  Franco de Simone said of his portraits of Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Stalin, Karl Marx and the American man with a hat re-imagined in his latest Exhibition Frida Kahlo, “An Illustrated Life” opening at the Joseph D. Carrier Art Gallery in Toronto, July 7.  Frida Kahlo, the Mexican surrealist cult artist with one famous eyebrow (1907-1954) painted some 200 vivid, extraordinary self portraits full of symbolism and wit, often with incredible concoctions arranged on her head, many Mexican-influenced, many purely eccentric, usually with a touch of royalty.  Even when ill, which was often because a streetcar crash at 18 left her in constant pain for the rest of her life, her hair was dressed as if for a fiesta. Her signature accessories – ribbons, flowers, and jewelry, all braided into the hair are always inspirational. For the MUST-SEE video by Franco De Simone, click HERE
