RIP Harold Leighton Hair Icon – 1932-2024

RIP Harold Leighton Hair Icon – 1932-2024

See Text For Photo Credits known. Collage by helenoppenheim.com

Goodbye, dear Harold Leighton, a hair icon like no other.  Born in England, ex Manager of the Salon at the famous Harrods Department Store, the man who introduced Paul Mitchell Hair Products to England and Europe, who worked for  S&L and other famous names, who created some of the greatest hair of his generation.  Harold lived his last decades in Florida from where he generated a buzz about too many products and ideas to list.

In 1957 he married the love of his life, Maxine. My heart goes out to you, Maxine.  There are no words.  Take a look at some of Harold’s work, and his life, lived to the fullest.  RIP, Harold Leighton.  You were loved by many and will be missed by all.

Men Set A Brooch Trend @ Oscars – 2024

Men Set A Brooch Trend @ Oscars – 2024

Photos Helen Oppenheim with Thanks to ABC-TV

It was the men who set a trend at the 96th Oscars for 2024, some dazzling sparklers sparkled.  Brooches on the lapels of some elegant males made The Fashion Statement at these Academy Awards.   Both men and women wore red pins to support Artists4Ceasefire, who are calling for an immediate and permanent cease-fire in the Israeli-Hamas war.  The silent protest with these pins made a clearer political statement than words.

Top Row, left to right: Mark Ruffalo of “Poor Things” made a double statement – the red pin and a sparkling brooch on his Givenchy tux … Billy Eilish, who won an Oscar wit her brother for Best Original Song in Barbie’s “What Was I Made For?” wore the red pin on her Chanel black blazer … Sir Ben Kingsley wore a sparkler pin on his Dolce & Gabbana suit … Cillian Murphy, who won the award for Best Actor for his role in “Oppenheimer,” wore a Sauvereign gem brooch on his Vesace tux, his bow tie a different shape to classic bow ties.
Bottom Row: Robert Downey, Jr. added an Elsa Peretti brooch with a diamond-encrusted stem on his Saint Laurent suit.  He won the Best Supporting Actor award for his role in “Oppenheimer” … Jeffrey Wright, nominated for his role in “American Fiction” wore a Giorgio Armani tux with a Chaumet brooch … Ke Huy Quan added a Cartier brooch on his Giorgio Armani suit … Writer-Director, Cord Jefferson, who won the Best Adapted Screenplay Award for “American Fiction,” wore a red flower pin on his Zegna  lapel.  And these are just some of the brooches worn by men. The women played it safe for the most part and I didn’t see one interesting hairstyle on any of the women, who set no trends

Graham Wren, RIP. This very special man and talent will be missed. He was International Art Director, Vidal Sassoon, based in New York and without him, all the great work in North America from 1979-1981 would not have happened  Here are just a few of his hairstyles, from 1979 and 1981, not his usual hairstyles but all lovely and. innovative at the time

Top Row: Graham Wren, late 70s.     1.  Modern Marlene from the Soft Cubism Collection, 1979,  inspired by Marlene Dietrich in the 1931 movie “Dishonoured”,   Photo Unknown.

Peter Gray's Knot @ Badgley Mischka - 2024

Photos: Helen Oppenheim. Collage: helenoppenhiem.com

The hair by Peter Gray and Team for the Badgley Mischka NY Fashion Week FW 2024 Show was a super sleek pony tail with a little knot achieved by weaving with a big needle then securing with black thread.  “Simply Sumo” Gray called it.  The makeup by Mary Irwin was about Moody Blues, with a touch of Twiggy, the look being inspired by classic Twiggy makeup, but modernized with placement and color.  To see the album archived on this website with more on the hair, the makeup, the earrings and the fabulous fashions CLICK HERE
